Popinchalk and his wife, who taught for more than 40 years in Aspen before retiring, live in a modest, deed-restricted home with a rich garden across from the high school. Since buying in 2000, the home has appreciated less than $100,000. If the home were free-market, Popinchalk would have paid much more, but it would have appreciated at a much greater rate.

While the housing authority’s rules allow them to retire in their subsidized home, Popinchalk and his wife, Carolyn Fields, are hardly idle. Fields volunteers with a program at her church that offers

Why is everyone upset about the Chairman of Countrywide not being allowed to go to Aspen to wine & dine ?

So what if.....he and other mortgage hi rollers are ready to rock and take it deep . .and after a large percentage of the loans they made go into foreclosoure! Is it his problem.....

Americans are upset... of course they are! Many homeowners were given loans that they could not afford, which made individuals and companies such as these a lot of money.
