Well, I guess Menards is now on the "Global Warming bandwagon". In my most recent visit to the store, this week, I was dismayed to see the compact flourescent light bulbs prominently displayed and the old standard, less expensive incandescent bulbs basically relegated to obscure shelves.
This bulb hysteria is ridiculous and a hoax to sell more expensive light bulbs (not to mention the mercury danger). I am very disappointed in Menards. I expect "pc" behavior at Target; I was surprised to see it prominently displayed at Menards as well. My family shop routinely at Menard in Minnesota for a number of things.
I feel so strongly about this bulb issue which is essentially a personal liberty/freedom and unfortunately, more government regulation issue, that we may have to find other alternatives. Unfortunately, big business appears to be unable to stand up to big government whenever their own pockets can be lines. It's too bad large corporations can't take a longer view of these very important issues.
FIGHT THE CFL LIGHTBULB!!!!
