When are they going to do something about all of the mercury in these damn “pigtail” lights we’re being forced into buying and then throwing away when they give up the ghost?

How about taking a bunch of those spiral mercury bulbs. Package them all together so they break easily. Enclose them in a couple of ziplock bags. Box them up, label the box fragile (so the U.S. Post Office will be sure to break them) and send them to our federal legislators offices in D.C.

Enclose a big thank you note.

Bingo.

If nobama gets reelected, you can look for some wildeyed EPA ruling that you are not allowed to dispose of those damn pigtail lights or have to pay double the purchase price for “HazMat” disposal through a nobama friend’s companies.
