Interesting how these articles turn out--I had tried to put Breckenridge in touch with Cincinnati Eco-Village, which at last report is pretty close to getting to move-in, but evidently our little inactive Dayton group is the only one that she could speak to? I had also tried to direct her to other more interesting sources--in particular the Wifeswap episode with Zev :-) but I guess in the end the article turned into a short filler piece rather than a full-fledged feature. Maybe in a couple of years conditions in Ohio will change. T R
