Notebook: Foreclosure Scare
But amid those grim statistics, it's heartening to hear a story like Tracy Orr's. She was ready to watch as her Pottsboro, Texas, home was auctioned last weekend, only to have a stranger, moved by her tears, buy it back for her. Marilyn Mock put in the winning bid without even seeing a picture of the house or knowing much about the distraught woman beside her.
A legend here at CBS News, Charles Kuralt, may have said it best: "The everyday kindness of the back roads more than makes up for the acts of greed in the headlines."
Happy Halloween, everyone.
