The University of Wisconsin Cooperative Extension Service reminds us to "Prepare for January 1 2012 Incadescent Light Bulbs Phase-Out." I think they mean "incandescent" but you get the point.
Mindful of this government intrusion into the free market, I just received this suggestion from Richard M.
So, I've been thinking. Congress and the EPA have given us reason to celebrate January 1, 2012.
What if a few thousand people strapped on a few batteries and some CFL's and stood around the Capital building and the White House?
Of course we could party in front of our state capitol buildings or even our town halls for that matter.
We'd have to be awful careful though. Wouldn't want to accidentally drop any of those energy saving bulbs.
Why the local, state and federal EPA guys would have to declare a HAZMAT emergency, what with all of the mercury that would be released.
