Given the President Obama's stated commitment to moving this country toward greater usage of renewable energy sources, the news contained in blog entry
in today's New York Times is rather curious.
Okay, granted, the idea of some guy showing up at the White House and asking them to put solar panels on the roof may have been a publicity stunt. But the folks in the Obama's administration ought to be savvy enough to know that questions don't go away when you ignore them.
If' there's a legitimate reason for not installing solar panels at the White House, then come out and say it. But I also think there would be tremendous symbolism in such a move that might spur average Americans to follow suit.
