A great note from a reader re my brief blog entry last week on light bulbs:
Dear Mr. Hillyer,
I really appreciated your contribution on light bulbs. I’d like to add two more observations. I use conventional incandescent lighting in my livestock barns, with some fluorescent tubes in the aisles of the barns to augment the light. When the temperature drops below 30 to 35, I’ve noticed that the fluorescent tubes’ light output drops to a fraction of what it previously was. Add that to the fact that my fluorescent tubes last about ¼ the time that the incandescent bulbs have lasted. I’m certainly not a fan of CFLs and hope to stockpile enough of the old bulbs to last until there is a reasonable alternative or someone comes to their senses and reverses the new regulation.
Thanks for your enlightening article!
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
