How to Detect a Dishonest Mortgage Loan Officer [infographic]
Mortgage loan officers with questionable ethical standards profited sweetly during the go-go years of the real estate boom, mostly by pushing risky loans to borrowers who didn’t necessarily have what it took to qualify for one the honest way. Now, thanks to new legislation and regulations, predatory loan officers are all but out of business. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you should trust your lender wholeheartedly. Here are some of the red flags that your loan officer may not be completely honest with you — along with signs that they do have your best interest at heart.

Young girl holding a fox that has been clubbed to death.
Photo: Wallace Kirkland, Mar 01, 1944
LIFE! Right?! I’ve been looking into this girls eyes and studying her face for, what, like ten minutes, now. Looking as well at the dead fox with eyes and mouth agog, arms akimbo, body cupped in that uncomfortable locus shoulder ball joint. Ignore the crowd behind. Their field depth means they’re less than strophe than antistrophe, less antistrophe than epode, less epode than afterthought. Look at this girl!
I’ve been looking into this girl’s eyes and studying her face for some sign to indicate she’s evil or joyful or awful, and she’s not. That’s the entirely the whole point of this photograph, right? Juxtaposition! As if every photograph weren’t an already obsolete recapitulation of Wittgenstein’s Tractatus. As a person with eyes, I take umbrage at the imprecation. I do not gawk. I do not intuit logic from mere position. I do not truck with the notion that a this plus another this equals a that. There isn’t superposition in two dimensions.
Jarring orthogonality? Jawing originality. Even in 1944. But what if they’re just putting us on? I suppose it is that simple! Just another day in Kenosha, dear. But look at her smile! At them both. The fox with his arms up as if to say Don’t shoot! I’m unarmed! The girl slightly out of phase: Seeing a camera seeing her.

Endorsing the above analysis! What a shot.
A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O’Connor
This is a recording from 1959 of Flannery O’Connor herself reading A Good Man is Hard to Find at Vanderbilt University.
Probably one of the coolest things in the world right now. Also, it’s included in the special features of John Huston’s film version of Wise Blood, recently released in the Criterion Collection.
