I read this article in the Times on Sunday. It's sad when desperation sets in and emphasizes the need to read documents carefully.
Maybe you should do a post on the guy that in 2002 bought underwater lots in Tampa Bay from tax auctions and then forced homeowners to pay gobs of money or have access to their docks restricted. Another story of the property boom.
