CFL and Wives

I was upset by this Washington Post article that says Americans aren't replacing their incandescent bulbs with CFLs. It's easy to do, it's more economical, and it'll help to protect our trails and wildlife. If you have concerns they might be assuaged by this:
A new breed of bulbs solves most, if not all, of the old gripes. The bulbs are smaller and much cheaper -- often selling for as little as $1.50 each at big-box stores. Most bulbs pay for themselves in reduced power consumption within six months. They last seven to 10 years longer than incandescent bulbs. The hum and flicker are long gone, and many bulbs are designed to mimic the soothing, yellowish warmth of incandescent bulbs.

The odd thing about the article is the slant. It seems to suggest that women in America are both behind the lower rate of adoption to CFL and are more vain than women in other countries.
