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.
