Readers Try to Smile

Your emails continue to try to see the lighter side of "Mortgage Madness."

From Marcus K:

"I opened my e mail this morning and there in my in box is a note from Countrywide...... offering me a $299,000 line of equity credit... they make it seem so easy..."

From Will H, responding to the reader who said Fidelity sent him a letter suggesting he had too much of his investment money in cash:

"I got one of those phone calls today from my bank... to invest in one of her bank's 'fund of funds'... so I could have 'the security and peace of mind that come with proven professional fund management.' I told her I was moving the funds into Canadian Royalty Trust for four to five months, that I didn't like the weight in financials in her fund or the idea of owning funds within funds. She did her best to convince me I was making big mistake. I laughed so hard at her call today that I wasn't able to explain why I was laughing."
