Priorities - Part 1: The Environment

[img_assist|nid=2|desc=|link=node|align=right|width=182|height=240]Today I heard a story on the local public radio station about a Colorado woman who is being sued by her local homeowner’s association because she had the audacity to want to save energy by hanging her laundry outside to dry. It seems that there is an ordinance that had been voted into affect by the majority of pre-fab home owners in her development stating that hanging clothes out to dry is unseemly and not allowed. The chairman of the association was quoted as saying something to the effect of: “Hanging clothes outside your home is hideous and wrong and makes a person look…well, poor. And if you’re poor you deserve to be and you are probably a lazy minority and minorities are NOT allowed in this gated community. People have made a large investment in these huge homes and I will be God Damned if I will see someone’s clothing hanging in their own back yard.”
