If you watched The Colbert Report the other night, you heard that one of our local Assemblymen, Lloyd Levine (D-Van Nuys), is introducing a bill to ban the sale of incandescent light bulbs in California by the year 2012 because they are much less efficient than fluorescent light bulbs. He’s titled it the “How Many Legislators Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb Act.” Don’t believe me? Perhaps a better title would be the “Let’s Light Everyone’s Face So They Look Green and Pukey Act” or, perhaps more accurately, the “I Need Press And I Don’t Care What Kind Even If It’s Just Late Night TV Bits At My Expense Act.” I’m actually neutral on this bill. I don’t really care about light bulbs. Plus, when DWP picked up my broken refrigerator the other day they gave me six free fluorescent bulbs (a $40 value), so I’m prepared for the transition. I’m just concerned that this will mean Light Bulbs Unlimited, a store I’ve never entered but enjoy driving by at 40mph, will either go out of business or be forced to resort to selling illicit bulbs. Does Light Bulbs Unlimited deserve that? They do not.
