Illumination prohibition

Congressional meddlers, in an attempt to conserve energy, have attacked incandescent lighting. What’s next, limits and tariffs on showy outdoor Christmas displays?

And what manner of energy efficient bulbs will Congress legislate to replace our tiny little twinkling strings? Could this become the “illumination prohibition” in which shady characters make illegal fortunes dealing in black market banned bulbs?

Bah, humbug!
