    Hi Andrew. I like the fact you let the data put some positive spin on the market. I see lots of negative blogging out there and lots of canned content. At http://www.myfhamortgageblog.com we have a pretty good group or coop authors trying to keep a positive spin on it and give consumers knowledge of their options and opportunities. Keep it up.
