Earth Hour (of hate)

I'm all in favor of efficiency, but to spite the hypocrisy of the electricity haters celebrating Earth Hour on Saturday night, I want to shine one of those 40 million candlepower SunForce spotlights they sell at Cabela's straight into the sky as a celebration of human achievement, an homage to the comfort and liberation provided by abundant, cheap electric power, and to honor all the coal miners and line workers who ever died to deliver it and all the countless, wonderful benefits of it. Actually, I'll be playing ice hockey at about that time. . . in Texas. Oh, I love electricity, and I love to use it in awesome ways.
