Our son called today to say they are moving

Your home. Your heart.
by Bob Collins, Minnesota Public Radio (3 Comments)

Here's the little presentation I promised I'd have a week ago. Here's the premise: We (the media) often miss a piece of the story with the current housing crisis. Sure, it's about bank instruments, late payments, declining values, and, quite often, the sadness of losing a home and having to find another way to survive. Part of this is because of how we came to view our homes during the "boom" times. They were bank accounts we could cash out. We forgot that you can't cash out the way the things that happen in your home, end up in your heart.
