A reader reminded me that I had promised to send defunct CFL bulbs to my Congressman, so I’ve dug the latest failure out of the kitchen trash can and will send it off to Jimbo in Washington, labeled “hazardous waste’. Blogging may be suspended while I arrange bail.
UPDATE: rethinking the subject, I may send it anonymously.
UPDate II: Since I’ve been Instalanched, I thought I’d combine my two posts.
I’m a little nervous about mailing off, all by my lonesome, a lightbulb that the DEP has declared a hazardous substance – a few months in jail could be a bummer. But if voters from all over the country sent them to Washington – how about September 30th? – anonymously, we’d shut down the Capitol while hazmat teams ran around like chickens. I’m sending out a link to this suggestion to all my fellow whacko bloggers, in the hope that readers with dead, burned-out CFLs will save them and, after wiping off fingerprints, mail them on the 30th. Here’s where to find the address of your Congressman.
