Right to Dry Movement

No, it doesn't involve Jack Kevorkian.

Some homeowners' associations forbid residents from drying laundry on a clothesline, because it's just so darn plebeian, I guess, to save energy while exposing the world to your wet clothing. But, according to the AP, some people are fighting back with what's being cleverly dubbed "the right to dry movement." And evidently some states are now passing laws that forbid any organization from banning outdoors clotheslines.

I wish things like this didn't have to be legislated, but I also wish homeowners' associations would get their noses out of everyone's business. Thus: go, right-to-dry people!
