And Liberty Takes Another Blow ...

I had originally planned on linking to this story, California Lawmaker Wants To Ban Traditional Light Bulbs, and make some comment about how crazy they are over there on the left coast. Then, I heard this on the radio this morning: Connecticut legislators want the state to consider a ban on incandescent bulbs.

Apparently, the motivation here in Connecticut is both the high cost of energy and concern for the enviornment.

Along with the global warming report, this just leaves me feeling very defeated today. Things are not getting better, they're getting worse- we're getting more and more laws that assume people are too stupid to make choices for themselves and more laws that use the enviornment or public health as a means of justifying more and more restrictions on individuals.
