This is how the United States repays its medal winners. (ht @pbump)
EDIT: Because this clearly got misinterpreted, this was not meant as the U.S. government, but the U.S. as a culture. The cultural climate of the United States made foreclosures a fact of life for many. Especially in Florida, of all places, where foreclosures have in recent years been among the country’s highest. That’s what the comment was intended towards. A single sentence probably wasn’t enough to make that clear. — Ernie @ SFB
