First up on today’s show, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the quasi-federal mortgage companies, are making it easier to buy back their houses after a foreclosure. The news is some homeowners will be able to buy the house back not at the original pre-real estate crisis high price but at the new, presumably lower market price. And amid ongoing intense debate about President Obama’s executive order to stop millions of deportations of unauthorized immigrants, there’s a new focus on the future of authorized immigration, from more skilled workers or entrepreneurs from abroad. Plus, what once seemed odd is becoming commonplace in our less-connected society:  Thanksgiving dinner in a restaurant. The holiday has become one of the busiest days of the year for dining out.
