    Not socialism, but definitely helping our fellowman. Growing up poor, I spent many hours in laundromats with my mom. Even in those days it was expensive (relatively) for a family. I think this is one of those things the Jesus might say was appropriate. Logistically I don't know how it works but I hope we can make some effort to start something like this.

    Nothing in Utah. Anyone else want to help me start one? I once had the privilege of helping a homeless man get into a permanent housing situation, and found the effort very satisfying. One of the things that he struggled with was keeping clean. This seems like a way to similarly help some people in need.

    It's socialism. Give them laundry, and the next thing you know, we've run out of excuses why they shouldn't have a respectable minimum wage. Or health care. It's a slippery slope, I tell you.

    Our society has a lot of hidden costs that we take for granted. Maybe like internet, transportation, education, marriage/relationships, tolerance and acceptance, food and shelter, laundry should be redefined as a basic human rights, if you want to be a part of our society...
