Banks, how do they work?

When a bank decides to foreclose instead of restructuring a mortgage, is this favorable or unfavorable to its balance sheet? So that I can learn more about this side of the banking business, are there any resources that go into detail in explaining the decision-making process of banks in this situation, especially in the context of the financial crisis?

I never took accounting 101 please help!

Basic accounting text? I'm an attorney and recently a lot of my job involves ferreting out a defendant's financials, balance sheets, and cash flow statements. I've never taken accounting and my knowledge is very limited. I'd like to get some kind of basic accounting text (or other source) to just kind of help me better understand what I'm looking at and also ask informed questions of CFOs and accountants and the like. I work in a very small firm, so we (and our clients) don't really have money for expensive experts and I've got to do a lot of this leg work on my own. Thanks for your help. I'm looking for something that just explains the basics of balance sheets, cash flow statements, and financials etc.

How do I make this story work?

Working on a fictional story about campaign finance reform. I need holes shot in the governing premises. The first tenet is the most obvious hole in it: no corporation may contribute to a national political candidate. It's not a new idea, and it's not interesting. The enforcement of it is. And I need to know more about accounting and auditing to even have a shot of making it feasible, so read on. [more inside]
