image for Congress Suggests National Bedtime
This young lady wonders what she could do at night if she had to do it in the dark.

In response to mostly unheard outrage in the environmental sector, the U.S. Congress proposed a method to reduce the nation's carbon footprint by more than 20% in the next 2 years.

The plan is ingeniously simple, and has a 100% chance of success if it is implemented. The only problem is that the American people aren't used to being told when to go to bed, and that is exactly what this proposal would do.

"It's quite the remarkable piece of legislature," one aide to a congressional aide's brother remarked. "The idea is that at 9pm every night, people turn off the TV, shut out the lights, and get themselves a good night's sleep. It is the routine already adhered to by many members of Congress."
