There is nothing worse than noting an on air appearance after the fact, except perhaps noting that I'm personally disappointed I missed the live interview.

Anthony Bourdain not only turned up on Midmorning yesterday, the writer-chef-rock-n'-roll-fan sat down on Monday with Mary Lucia...Two new reasons this unabashed Bourdain fan is grateful for MPR's audio archive.

Featured discussion: Foreclosure: It's not just for poor people anymore

Posted at 3:53 PM on November 28, 2007 by Julia Schrenkler

Bob Collins published an interesting discussion on Gather: Foreclosure: It's not just for poor people anymore. He notes,

The mortgage foreclosure crisis isn't just another blot on lower-income neighborhoods. Sometimes it's a blot on the toney ones, as a search of Hennepin County's foreclosure database shows.

He goes on to profile an investor who had to foreclose on a Kenwood Parkway address. Of course it didn't just affect the house owner, it has a block-wide impact. Has your neighborhood been hit with a foreclosure? Join the online discussion to share your comments or give Bob another angle to consider.
