The US Conference of Mayors met in Detroit this week to talk about the mortgage crisis, which has affected one out of every 196 households nationally. "Detroit Free Press" recently published a list of foreclosed homes in Wayne County, Mich., which includes Detroit and other suburbs and inburbs. It was 122 pages long, in tiny stock-listing type. "Weekend America" host Desiree Cooper speaks with Lisa Tate of Highland Park, Mich. Tate has very few remaining neighbors. Their homes have all been foreclosed.
