Drudge To Replace Flashing Siren With Fluorescent

Posted by a4g @ 7/14/2005 07:15:00 AM

The millions of people who visit The Drudge Report daily may notice something a little different this summer.

As state demand for electricity overwhelms the aging power grid, electric utilities throughout California are preparing for the typical summer routine of threatened rolling brown-outs. As usual, they are asking companies throughout the state to conserve power.

Matt Drudge, now based in Florida but still retaining ties, and fondness, for his former home in California, has answered the call, redesigning the famous "flashing siren" for breaking news with an energy-smart fluorescent version.

"Fluorescent lighting is 3 times more energy efficient than a standard incandescent bulb. With an average of 9.3 million page views daily, were talking about savings of... well, probably a lot."

UPDATE: It must be Drudge Day in satireland. The Therapist has more Drudge news. Linked on Mudville Gazette.
