Residents Try to Block Eviction (with Neighbors’ help)

2006_foreclosure_rate_heat_map.png

A local mom bought what she thought would be her dream house, but by Wednesday night, she and her three kids could be homeless. And it’s the current mortgage crisis that’s hitting them hard. So the family is being evicted, but they won’t go without a fight. FOX25’s Sharman Sacchetti reports from Dorchester with details. [LINK]

I’m not exactly prone to link to FOX News except to highlight its ludicrousnesses, however, this story struck me as pretty wild. Plus, it’s supposed to all go down today.

Coincidentally, the picture above is a home foreclosure "heat map" from 2006, borrowed from the pages of The Big Picture, a real estate blog chock full of useful financial information.

Definition of the Sec

The most expansive veto power of any governor in the country would be curtailed under a proposal that unanimously cleared the state Senate on Tuesday.

The proposal would amend the state constitution to ban the so-called "Frankenstein" veto, which allows the governor to cross out words and numbers and stitch together others to create new laws not approved by the Legislature.
