    Personally, I think we should just outlaw wasting electricity for frivolous marketing purposes, with those animated big screens that try to flash all their sales events at you WHILE YOU'RE NAVIGATING TRAFFIC with people zipping in and out around you going first.  Hollande's move to turn out the 24-hour lights in Paris is a first step.  150 years ago, lighting up a city so you could see it from twenty miles in the air was a miracle.  Now it's a nuisance that makes it hard to see the stars.

    In the meantime, if I were running a business like those huge car-sales lots, you'd better believe I'd be looking into reducing costs by investing in the best available technology.  One reason I prefer lower tech is that the margins are relatively small compared to the capital on the small scale.  With heavy use and long lifetimes, the numbers change dramatically.
