Hit the lights!

The suggestion that the Daily News had last week that the city turn out the lights in its buildings at night is already being put into effect.

City to workers: Last one out, turn out the lights!

On top of that:

The Friday memo details the city's plans to make floor-by-floor visits to the 53 buildings it manages "to identify areas where we can install energy-efficient light bulbs and also, where appropriate, add timers and sensors to cut down on unnecessary use of electricity."

How many city workers does it take to turn off a light bulb?

First a $20,000 study has to be done on light bulbs.....then a "Parkside Group" appointed committee of 12 (each member earning at least $70,000) can decide on the finalists who get that plum of a patronage job.

Hey....what about Brian Mc Laughlin's friends at Wellsbach Electric? They had the NYC streetlight contract for years!

H-m-m-m. the rich get richer and the poor get screwed!
