Barry Ritholtz takes the Washington Post to task for their mealy-mouth depiction of the foreclosure crisis. The WaPo seems to think the crisis is due to some "questionable practices" by the banks. But Barry flatly says the problem isn't some innocent misunderstanding due to "questionable practices", but that those practices were rather outright fraud and that's a Felony.
And Barry expresses my feelings exactly on the right response to the thought there could be a "MERS pardon." I'll help pay for that team of Ninja lobbyists of the night.
