Regarding A.M. Johnsons reply to my letter regarding incandescent light bulbs, I would like to point out that the production of the incandescent bulbs may have ceased in the USA but they continue to be produced in Japan and in Europe in wattages less than 100 and will/could be until 2014. These bulbs are also imported into the USA where it is legal to sell them until 2014.

As for your comment regarding Mr. Borders' statement: "I don't mean to say it was your fault, I said I am blaming you."

My comment to Mr. Borders was simply to clarify his misunderstanding of which administration signed into law the end to incandescent light bulbs. He seemed to want to blame the current Democratic administration when in fact it was the last Republican administration that made this law what it is today. Fault or Blame aside the facts are the facts.
