Paper Towels or Electric Dryer?

Is it better for the environment to use paper towels or the electric hand dryer to dry your hands after washing them?

Someone asked me this recently, and while I assumed the hand dryer, I didn't really know the answer. So, I went to the expert.

So put your guess in now (feel free to leave it in a comment), and then read the answer straight from the Green Miles.

Electric dryer..
When you add in transportation(both of the paper to the location and of the trash truck), processing of the tree to paper and then landfill costs, electric would seem to be the obvious answer.
