Vermont's Rutland Herald introduced us to Alexander Lee, the person behind Project Laundry List.
That's the non-profit organization that is working to make clotheslines legal in every city and town across America. (Stephanie's blogged about her love of clotheslines before, and both the Rutland Herald article and a reader comment here at Re-nest suggest adding half a cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle to soften clothes and prevent that stiff-as-a-board effect that usually comes from clotheslines.
We were a little heartbroken, though, that Lee's earnest inspiration—a college professor who claimed that if everyone switched to clotheslines, there'd be no need for nuclear power—was a bit off the mark according to the stats cited in the article... but hey, inspiration is inspiration, right?
