Signs of the times

You know how churches have screens with information displayed during service? Like "Will the owner of green Honda Accord with MD plates XXXX please move your car?" or "Sister Toyin, please come to the children's church"? Well guess what they were displaying at my church this past Sunday:

Foreclosure Avoidance Classes: Sign up now!!!

I read it and I chuckled to myself. Several months ago, those screens were displaying:

Sign up for Homebuying 101. Classes filling up fast!!!

How times have changed. Even though the educated and informed folks have not officially declared the "home as a business" bubble a bust, I keep seeing the signs. I woke up this morning to hear NBC4 advertising a "how to avoid foreclosure" segment.
