    To NeilT, many of those charged with criminal activity in Blanding were entrapped by an informer who was trying to save his own skin. He actually tried to get people with perfectly legal collections to sell to him so he could have them charged with dealing in artifacts. He was one of the three who took their own life in connection to the swat team, heavy handed arrests. None of those arrested served jail time.

    As far as I can see, this is only an alleged or supposed "curse." No source was provided in the article to confirm where --exactly-- the curse came from. I don't "buy it"!

    @ ElmoBaggins: Where did you get your info (official source) to make the claim that the same curse applies to oil drilling in Escalante?? Pfffff!

    @ gmlewis: As the old saying goes--- It's better to do the right thing for the wrong reason, than to NOT do the right thing at all!

    Reminds of the situation involving the people from Blanding removing Indian artefacts from BLM land. Not only were they criminally prosecuted they suffered some terrible misfortune, several died. Just a thought.

    Same curse applies to those who would drill for oil in this area!

    Supposedly the volcano goddess Pele does the same for people who take rocks from Hawaiian volcanoes.

    The Lord blesses obedience, but Satan uses our fears and superstitions against us. Doing right because we fear a curse is a poor motivation.

    Oh please, it's called guilt not bad luck.
