Cool, Depressing Bankruptcy Graph!

I need to parse this carefully.  The data (thanks being displayed is sad and appears to track closely with foreclosures.  Now that would interesting layer on top of this graph, seeing the correlation between declaring bankruptcy and foreclosures.

One of the stories that has been under reported in my view, is the foreclosure story.  I’ve heard one report that in some neighborhoods, there have been so many foreclosures that foreclosed houses are being destroyed because an empty house is more toxic to housing prices that an empty lot.  This story is at the heart of the downturn and yet mostly we see stories about bailouts and stock market declines and the like.
