Gee, but it was fun March 28, at least for one hour, to pretend we were all living in North Korea in order to "save the planet?"
We were told by the World Wildlife Fund that this event was a "global climate event." Oh Really? I thought that World Wildlife Fund was concerned with polar bears, three-toed sloths, snail darters and spotted owls. How turning off my lights for one hour at night affects these creatures escapes me.
The event was, as usual, simply another silly public relations stunt which to be truly effective ought to have been celebrated midday in July by turning off all airconditioners.
But that wouldn't make for good TV or newspaper coverage because it presents no photo op. By the way, using Google or Yahoo image sites, type in Korea+night+satellite to see what North Korea looks like at night. It offers a chilling image of life under socialism.
