    RE ode to light bulb

    “And so it came to pass, in the autumn of 1879, after tireless effort
    working with different materials, Thomas Edison finally arrived at the
    ingenious invention we still see today, the Edison light bulb, in its
    basic form, without any energy efficiency constraints, the world’s
    single most popular electrical appliance and the oldest electrical
    invention in widespread common use:
    A beautifully simple, safe, cheap, bright light delivering construction.

    Maybe the time will come when, like its cousin the gleaming radio
    tube, it gradually fades away, the passing of old technology.

    But let it be a democratic passing by the will of the people,
    not a passing by committee dictats and decrees.

    How many politicians should it take to change a light bulb?
    None.

    How many citizens should be allowed to choose?
    Everyone.”
