OK, I retract my statement.  I researched it and apparently the government
no longer cares.  I refused to use them when they first came out because
they were considered environmental nightmares and, at least in PA, there
were strict controls.  I still wouldn't use them, but then I don't have to as
LED lights are avaialble.  I still have flourescent lights, but as they die I will
be replacing them with LED as well.

   And if you break one you  have to call HAZMAT.  You did realize that,
   didn't you?  They contain mercury and any breakage requires professional
   remediation by law!!

Uhm... No you don't.  Stop the fearmongering please ...
