Maybe it’s my patriotism—or my hardwired Depression-era frugality—but I can’t stand leaving the lights on for no reason. Which is why I applaud the New York football Giants. Yesterday, in the midst of getting shellacked at home by a bunch of Texan criminals, they simply turned out the lights.
Sure, 80,000 fans were terrified and trapped in the dark—but how about taking one for the team? No need to throw good electricity after bad.
