Missing the Point

George Will thinks people buy fluorescent light bulbs and Priuses because they feel guilty.


It's not guilt that makes people buy green. It's the smug feeling of superiority you get. You'd think a smug, superior type like George Will would intuitively grasp something like that.

Ah well, I guess we're all blind when it comes to seeing ourselves.

I buy green so's that the 18 year old working at trader joes will think I am cool. ("cool", Do the kids still say that?)
