Well according to WaPo this afternoon the “economy is bad for your health“, particularly if you are a homeowner. According to the article a study conducted by UPenn‘s School of Medicine found that 47% of the 250 homeowners interviewed showed signs of depression while 37% exhibited signs of major depression. The study also concluded that:

All I can say is DUH! I’d be showing the same signs if I were faced with the prospects of being homeless. While I am not a homeowner myself, I still can empathize with the individuals that have been effected by this.
