Literal Dark Ages

I'm sure any government restrictions on asbestos and lead paint will be forthcoming after reading this.

"Four of Edison's descendants said the great inventor would be mortified to see politicians trying to get the nation to hang on to an outdated technology when better bulbs are available."

I don't think Edison is the best name to invoke here. Edison continued to push his own DC power grids after more the far more transport-efficient AC power grids became available. Hell, Edison electrocuted animals for the press using an AC-powered electric chair (invented by an employee of his) to scare people away from using AC power. House Republicans have nothing on that.

Personally, I'm a little disappointed in CFL lights. I'm getting about 4-5 years out of them instead of the advertised 7-10. At this rate, I'm not even breaking even vs. incandescent.
