So I’m watching “Law & Order” tonight. The “Law” part starts with a sub-prime mortgage scheme. People with bad credit were unwittingly signing over their homes to a con man. He, in turn, was using his “temporary” possession of their titles to sell these homes. He was, of course, caught in a sting. (And can I just stop this story to say, “Yay” and “Atta-boy!” to whomever cast Jeremy Sisto on the show this season. Although I can’t quite shake the memory of him as uber-creepy, pseudo-incestuous Billy Chenowith on “Six Feet Under”, there is still a certain something about him….But I digress.) Way to go cops. Bad, bad mortgage con man!
First commercial break. “Have you missed a few mortgage payments? Wanting to get back on track? Call Canadian Mortgage Lenders….” Seriously? If I was that company, I’d sooo be asking for my money back.
Somewhere, in a darkened control room, some TV dude is laughing himself stupid, then drying his eyes, then contemplating a career change.
