The Department of Energy is cracking down on enforcing water-use regulations
in the name of some supposed environmental concerns that the people who
make fancy water-guzzling showers for rich water-guzzling people really
don't want to have to think about, thanks.The Raindance Imperial 600
AIR showerhead spews six times the legal limit of water, but Gene
Goforth, who sells them, says it's none of these Socialist feds'
business.

"Leave my shower alone," Goforth recently
wrote to the Department of Energy.

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
