When I first saw the headline I thought it was about "Costa Rica". I suppose my brain could not conceive that a CALIFORNIA wealthy county like Contra Costa would no longer prosecute criminals.
The deputies in my county have never done more than take reports or write tickets, but I'm in Arizona.
I found out through a list message this evening that Wayne Strang passed away today.
An excellent article by the NY Times on the WaMu lending practices. It does however leave me wondering why the NY Times fails to mention that the California and federal regulators CONSPIRED with banks like WaMu to deliberately create the greatest depression.
