Salt Lake City, UT – Have you ever attended an open house with no intention of buying? Would you rather shop for bathroom tile than for shoes? If the answer is yes, than the journalist Daniel McGinn says you may have "House Lust." You're not alone though. For many, the American dream of owning a home has become a sort of mania. Tuesday, McGinn is with us to explain "the arms race for square footage" that has come at such a high price.
