This is in response to the article concerning the 77-year-old man who owns a 140-acre farm and lives alone in Salisbury Township near Lancaster. This gentleman has lived his life using an outhouse in preference to having a bathroom. He has no close neighbors, because of the amount of land he owns, so it is no one's business under the sun, how this man chooses to live his life. We are supposedly living in a free country, so let's start acting like we are free, instead of hiding behind some lame dictatorial township law, that allows no exception to a rule that should only apply to more heavily populated areas. An outhouse poses no threat whatsoever to any home inside or outside.
