addition to alcohol and cigarette and drug smuggling, we should soon be able to discuss incandescent light bulb smuggling. Thatâ€™s right folks, as we have reported before, those geniuses we continue to elect to Congress decreed that 20-cent filament light bulbs must be replaced by $3 compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) beginning in 2012. Readers may note that only the manufacture and sale of the bulbs will be illegal, not possession. Buy incandescents now while itâ€™s still legal.Now, it is true that, properly used, CFLs are more energy efficient than filaments. They do claim â€œup toâ€ 10,000 hours of life. But proper use involves long periods of continuous use, proper disposal to avoid mercury poisoning, buying fixtures in which they will fitâ€”something weâ€™re sure most folks are looking to do anywayâ€”and living with the fact that they simply will not turn on completely bright, taking time to warm up. Weâ€™re sure Congress thought of all that when making this tough decision for the American public. Free choice in the marketplace is overrated anyway.
