I'm not real happy that I'm beginning to become identified with our foreclosure and bankruptcy. Regular Linguini readers (and by that I mean those who read this blog on a regular basis, not those whose digestive systems do not require the aid of Activia) know that I am so much more than that.
However, there are precious few speaking out for we powerless, devastated foreclosure victims, who are not asking for anyone's pity. All we ask is that everyone stop blaming us for the entire economic condition of the country because, by the way, it's not our fault. Blame Wall Street; blame the greedy developers who raped the industry then dove for cover behind an embankment of lawyers.
So when I see articles like this that reveal such smug self-righteousness, I can't help myself. But I do feel bad that I have to pick on one person when I know this is the opinion of so many people. I'm sure the Bochers are a very nice family who are responding out of ignorance and self-preservation. I'm sorry my writing style leans toward the ... um ... sarcastic.
Okay. Maybe I'm not that sorry...
