Get your free housing before the market freezes up. [Market Ticker]

Momentum
You may have heard of a Minsky Moment [Wikipedia], you may also be aware of the Kennedy moment [Exurban nation], but were you aware of the Suez moment [Option Armageddon]?

Scamsters, apparently- fraud is up 42%.  Hell, if it wasn’t for fraudulent activity, the housing market would be even deeper in the toilet than it already is. Thanks to Yun, Frank, Hank, Greenspank, and Bukkake! [CNN][LAT]
