Article: Radical Homemaking?

From Sunday's San Francisco Chronicle

Yet another way of labeling the 'trend' away from Velveeta. Dropping out in the 21st century makes news, but more like nontrevercy. However, the author does try to stir it up.

She said, "At the end of the day, after you've recycled gray water into your garden, biked to work and washed a hundred diapers by hand, you've done a lot of good for yourself, but have you really changed the world?" Kraft asks. "Radical homemaking can become too self-righteous." I think if a quarter of us would do a quarter of that, we would be changing the world.

Another radical, Robin Johnson Simpson, of Belmont, has an interesting blog Frustrated Farmgirl.
