We continued our lives as usual last evening while parts of the planet, some of Nashville included, turned out their lights for an hour to demonstrate their solidarity with the planet. Never mind that the celebrations themselves probably used up more electricity than if everyone had just stayed home. Never mind we're healthier and more prosperous as a result of human achievement and people all over the planet would love to even have the option of turning lights on or off. The World Wildlife Fund told us to vote either for the planet or global warming. Who made them the election commission on this? We voted none of the above last night.
One of the children did wonder aloud what Al Gore was doing. Of course, none of us cared enough about it to check into it. But, our TCPR donations paid off one more time when Drew Johnson drove by the manse and noticed the Gore's also voted 'none of the above':
"The kicker, though, were the dozen or so floodlights grandly highlighting several trees and illuminating the driveway entrance of Gore’s mansion.
I [kid] you not, my friends, the savior of the environment couldn’t be bothered to turn off the gaudy lights that show off his goofy trees." Hat tip AC Kleinheider
