Walk away from your mortgage? Time to get 'ruthless'

Here's another article on strategic default.  It's the second one today.
No way, say an increasing number of underwater homeowners who are voluntarily choosing to "walk away" from their home loans, a practice known as "strategic default."
Jon Maddux, CEO of YouWalkAway.com, reports 10% more clients this year to his company, which advises people how best to handle the walk away process.
Charles Gallagher, a real estate attorney in St. Petersburg, Fla., has also seen an uptick.
And a recent survey by home finance company Fannie Mae found that while only about 27% of homeowners would even consider walking away, that's up from 15% last year.
