The New York Times

For federal and state governments, the deal will mean billions in cash and borrower assistance. For the bank, the agreement will help it get past its mortgage woes, many emanating from its 2008 purchase of Countrywide Financial, a truly toxic lender. But even if this largest-ever mortgage settlement goes through as expected, it will fall short if little to no meaningful cash goes to the demolition and repurposing of abandoned homes.

Whoops. Here's an issue.'"
