Default Chinese drywall worse than you can imagine

Fortunately, much of this Chinese drywall was used during the housing
boom to accommodate zero-down-payment, sub-prime mortgage holders.


What exactly is fortunate about that? Please explain why the health of
people who took out sub-prime mortgages deserves less protection than, say,
your health. Did you have any particular characteristic in mind which you
think these people have which makes their lives of less value than yours?
Many of the homes sold during the housing boom were investment properties,
the purchasers had no intention of living in them (a third of foreclosures
in the past couple of years have been of such homes). Can you explain why
the use of toxic materials in these homes is a matter of no concern, why it
is "fortunate" that people who move into these homes years from now will be
exposed to such toxic materials? Please, expand on your comment above, what
precisely is "fortunate" about this situation?


Note to the sarcasm-impaired: it was a joke.
