Watering Lawns in the Desert...

...Mish has this one right:
Why anyone thinks that watering the desert is a good idea in areas where water is in short supply is beyond me. But here it is: "Can you imagine what this will do to the value of our home?” [resident Brandon Knudsen] said. “One of my neighbors said, ‘I just put $20,000 into my backyard.’ And I just spent my summer, and $8,000, in my backyard. And for what?”

However, this goes far beyond a water problem for the 60 home owners in Liberty Ranch. The issue at hand is why anyone would want to buy a home from Centex or any other national builder that treats its customers this way.
