Foreclosing on the American Dream

Owning a house has always been part of the American dream, but Suzette Hackney of the Detroit Free Press has found that a growing number of Michigan families are losing their homes to foreclosure. In "Families Fight for their Homes," she tells us of the plight of the Lamberger family, who are struggling to keep their house while caught in a financial vise. Hackney succeeds in giving us the hard data on foreclosures, analyzing why the trend is happening and reaching our hearts through her portrayal of the Lambergers' tribulations.
