Ghost Town Rivalry A bill in the California legislature would make Bodie the state's official ghost town. Bodie is in northern California, not far from Yosemite National Park. But fans of a southern California ghost town are opposed to the bill. They want Calico, an attraction in the Mojave Desert, to be recognized. Robert Siegel talks with Don Tucker, marketing director for Calico, and with Terri Green, history interpreter for Bodie State Historic Park. (4:30) See http://www.calicotown.com/ and http://www.parks.ca.gov/default.asp?page_id=509.
