Hi, it is all bad news this morning! Like, really bad.

• In the third quarter of this year, home foreclosures were up 71 percent over last year. "Nearly 766,000 homes received at least one foreclosure-related notice from July through September." (That's more than 1 percent of U.S. mortgages!) And 250,000 homes were actually repossessed.

• That will send the markets hinky today.

• The New York Times also released their third quarter numbers too! "Preliminary third-quarter operating profit decreased to $10.0 million from $28.1 million in the third quarter of 2007."
