Our take: Spending time and energy on one thing can produce a deep love and understanding for something. For Roy Pogue, that was his 700 acres of land three hours southeast of Salt Lake City. Pogue, has finally relented and put a for sale sign up for his land. John M. Glionna from the Los Angeles Times has the story:
"Roy Pogue has loved a lot of things in his 63 years — like his wife, Chris, and her little Daffy Duck tattoo, not to mention the couple's six children.
"Yet few things have made his heart go flip-flop more than a dry-gulch piece of land out in the middle of Utah's nowhere.
"Sometimes, love truly is blind. A lot of words describe Pogue's backside-of-beyond parcel, where rust rules and the thermometers have all surrendered to the cold and the heat. One of those words is Godforsaken."Read more about Utah man and his ghost town on The Los Angeles Times.
