Listener Comments:

Not to minimize individual problems... But raw statistics can spread unwarranted panic. Even in Cuyahoga County, if one assumes an average household of 4 persons, there are 325 thousand households. 14 thousand foreclosure filings (including redundancy as cases progress). Doesn't this indicate that, notwithstanding mortgage fraud, a deteriorating economic base, and a part of the population that is permanently unemployed, 96% of people are current with their mortgage?
