I haven't read the Tightwad Gazette, but I plan on checking it out soon. With the dish washing, I think it all depends on how you wash your dishes and what type of dishwasher you have. I recently gaot a dishwasher, nothing fancy, and I use all the cycles (presoak, wash, heat dry). When I would wash them by hand, I almost always left the water running the whole time. I would every once in a while soak and wash in a plugged sink and rinse on the other side. Anyways, I haven't seen any increase in any of our utilities since getting the dishwasher.
