    If they cleaned all my scrap books out, I would be devastated. I have images that are near 100 yrs old, I have art work, and thousands of books, and journals and sketches.

    If someone cleaned me out like that, I would be beside myself.

    Furniture and dishes can be replaced, but the quilts made by my great great grandmother? or her set of depression glass? Not likely.

    And I don't make enough money to buy it back. Hell with gas at 3.5? a gallon and the price of food going up up up, I just get by.

    You don't know what was in that house. And you don't know what it meant to that woman. She could go to a store and find her heirloom photos cut to pieces in someone's collage tomorrow in some artsy fartsy district, or posted on the net somewhere for fun.

    My old man's medals, and our military records and more.

    Just the family photos would kill me. Just that. All the first steps, and drawings, and the intricate care I took in scrap booking and journaling our lives and our family history.

    The thought of just that being manhandled--you don't get that back. Because no doubt, even if she scanned it all onto a hard drive, that was taken, sold and wiped too.

    It's not just things! It's the life this person had, personal life, creative life, family life, love, friendships, history--all of that gone.

    People become depressed and angry when they lose that stuff to a natural disaster or a house fire. But the bitterness that would breed over a fucking mistake on paper by an entity that didn't just get the house number wrong--SHE PAID THAT HOUSE OFF! She had no reason to worry about this ever happening! EVER!

    They owe her big.

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
