It seems the post about a question about dealing with a mortgage in Florida has disappeared from the board. Did it go because the powers that be deemed it not to be DR related? If so I hate to tell you that this IS VERY MUCH DR RELATED as these market problems are going to affect the DR in many ways, from tourism to more importantly, investment in real estate, business, etc. It is very short-sighted on the part of whoever pulled the plug on the post as we've only just begun to be affected and need to discuss this much further. If you don't believe this just wait and see what a declining world economy and a jittery stock market does to the DR. As you may know, when the world sneezes the DR gets pneumonia.
