As reported this morning on, a New Jersey woman was being evicted from her home after a foreclosure when her son, who is 60, threatened police with a pistol. He quickly surrendered when the SWAT team showed up, so they didn’t get to shoot him, but now his mother has no home and he won’t be around to take care of her, what with heading to prison and all.

We’re going to see a lot more of this kind of thing — all avoidable pathetic human drama — as more of this foreclosure mess starts trickling down to the foreseeable end.

To slightly rewrite a cautionary message from the Sixties: Greed Kills.
