The day the lights went out
The Washington Post has a comprehensive story on the last General Electric factory in America that makes incandescent light bulbs. Later this month it's shutting its doors for good.
The headline: "How innovation killed the lights."
It's true. When it comes to jobs, innovation can both giveth and taketh away.
They'll have plenty of company with other once-mighty innovations. There's a new exhibit at the museum on Thomas Edison -- the man who birthed the incandescent bulb. It's called Thomas Edison: A Life Time of Innovation.
