Letters to the Editor

See the light

Thank you for your article on fluorescent/incandescent light bulbs. (See: “Unwilling to make the switch, shoppers stockpile old bulbs,” Jan. 2) The new lights put out a light that is as irritating as the halogen lights on automobiles.

I have 32 can lights in my home which are 18 years old, and have replaced only one can light and three 30-, 70-, 100-watt light bulbs. I don’t see the problem with the old bulbs, and the new ones are dangerous if they break.

I only bought one of the new ones and it lasted six months. What’s wrong with our government?
