Was that this New Mexico story?

If you scroll through foreclosure and unemployment statistics by county, it is clear that there is lots of pain. The Chronicle mentioned that 2.8% of housing units have already been repossessed in California, which is pretty shocking. Too bad that the downturn in the economy has forced layoffs of journalists, so we barely hear about stories for individual families and what they're doing. It also creates a sense of disorganization, where people in these different cities feel isolated. For example, there is more interest in the Los Angeles octuplets story than any of these companies that had to lay off 1000+ people, or the auto companies using bailout money to set up operations in Brazil.
