This security analyst was casually going about his business one day when he opened the basement door of his house and found a tennis ball wedged between the door frame and the storm door. “That’s odd!” he thought. “Who would do that? ”
After removing the tennis ball, he thought, “Well, this storm door is really loud when it closes those last few inches. Maybe someone did it to quietly enter or exit the house.” It just so happens that the daughter of said analyst was in high school and her bedroom was down the hall from the basement door. He promptly entered her room and took a quick look around. Lo and behold, the screen from her window was under her bed and the window itself was unlocked. Since this room was on the ground floor, the analyst immediately had some good ideas about what was happening with the window and the basement door. Someone was sneaking in or out of the house!
The analyst confronted his teenage daughter when she got home from school and received denial after denial about any possible wrongdoing. The denials did not sound sincere.

Why The Housing Bubble Won't Burst
Veteran analyst Michael Youngblood explains his unusually optimistic take on the real estate market
Type the words "falling housing prices" into Google and more than 8 million citations pop up. Michael Youngblood's name won't be among them. Despite all the fear that single-family home prices will decline, the managing director of asset-backed securities research at Friedman Billings Ramsey & Co. in Arlington, Va., thinks residential real estate is a lot stronger than most people suspect.

Eight months ago, recession had already become a real danger ( Call it the Oil Recession ), but I thought it could be averted if interest rates came down quickly enough.
Six months later, even with Fed action, the Economic Cycle Research Institute's array of leading indices had worsened to an extent never seen except before a recession, and I finally forecast one ( An Unavoidable Collision ). Since then, in the face of a rising popular conviction that we had avoided a recession, evidence of a recession has mounted.
