Ann Althouse: The No Impact Lifestyle

A book is being written, of course. Althouse says,"I hope that book isn't going to be printed on, you know, paper."

I have an idea: Why don't Americans go back to the good old days? Be Amish. I bet they have a "no impact" lifestyle. No computers, though, so people couldn't write (on a computer anyway) a book about their "no impact" lifestyle. They'd just have to, you know, live it.

Do the Amish have printing presses?

I don't know, but I'm guessing that printing presses would be okay as long as they were hand-cranked.

Maybe the book in question should be printed the same way. With manual typesetting, of course. Also, with hand-operated papermaking machines.
