======================
So when you're writing an article about MORTGAGE, use the latter. I read 2 different articles in the past few days where the writers used the former and it just bugged me because the articles are in Yahoo. Don't they do editing anymore before publishing an article? I know everyone can be published now because of the internet but why can't they at least check some important words like yes, principal. Is it petty for me to point that out? Maybe it is but I just can't help it when I read something that says  'paying an extra month mortgage will have a great impact on my PRINCIPLE'. C'mon now.
