    Craigslist ads reveal homeowners' woes

    It's so sad to see what everyone is going through.

    It's there if you look, coded into the swirls and whorls of the civic fingerprint that is Craigslist, a hidden narrative of lives dissolving. No big headlines here, no billion-dollar corporations seeking bailouts. It's just you and me, the little people, the laid-off people, swamped by the growing financial crisis and going broke in plain sight.

    My mom and step-dad just bought a house about 6 months ago. Last month my step-dad was laid off and hasn't so far been able to find another one. They are probably going to lose their house.

    I am so sorry for their situation. I don't know their ages, but I would reckon they are old enough, like me, where it's hard to start over. It just should not be that way.
