My mother is in town, and I drove out to the west suburbs to pick her up at the house of the friend she was staying with so that my kids, Kim and I could see her. Coming back from dropping her off tonight at her friend's house after her visit, I was stunned by a huge billboard I saw off the tollway. I thought at first it must be a joke.
You can actually take a bus tour that takes you to foreclosed homes in Chicago and its suburbs, so you can see them and bid on them. It's no joke-- it's for real.
This is just sick. There are so many foreclosed homes now that you can take a tour, like the Hollywood Celebrities Houses tour. Or more like the Chicago Haunted House Tour, except more ghoulish.
