America’s Real Fifth Column

NY Times columnist Joe Nocera has revealed pictures from last year’s Halloween party for the Steven J.

Nocera explains the costumes:

The other has a sign around her neck that reads: “3rd party squatter. I lost my home and I was never served.” My source said that “I was never served” is meant to mock “the typical excuse” of the homeowner trying to evade a foreclosure proceeding.
