If you're the kind of person who hates to clean for company, perhaps you might see a subplot in the actions of an Ohio man who bulldozed his $350,000 house rather than surrender it to a foreclosing bank.

According to WLWT Channel 5 in Cincinnati, Terry Hoskins, who lived in the rolling hills east of Cincinnati, was losing the home on which he owed $160,000 as a result of a failing family business, which the bank claimed as collateral. The IRS was in line as well, looking for its pound of flesh.

Hoskins had told the bank beforehand what he intended to do in response to its actions.
