Ban is ridiculous
Clothesline bans on the basis of “strangulation hazard” do not go far enough! [“Clothesline crusaders call laundry flap overblown,” page one, Aug. 14.]
Many housing developments have huge structures of flammable wood lying around, topped with toxic asphalt shingles. This is so dangerous that we have expensive “fire departments” for when these “houses” burst into flame.
Gigantic metal objects — some weighing several tons — careen around housing developments or even park near sidewalks, where these “cars” risk crushing pedestrians.
And then there are the members of homeowners associations: human beings. Are you aware that 100 percent of homicides are caused by human beings?
For the sake of safety, don’t ban just clotheslines. Ban houses, cars and humans from housing developments!
