CFB mercury pollution

To the Editor:

I read your alarming headline about energy efficient fluorescent bulbsCFBs: toxic bombs with dismay. I had heard there is some mercury in the compact bulbs, but didnt think its any more than in the regular fluorescent bulbs that we have weve used for years. My question is why did the Eagle print such an alarmist headline about toxic bombs when most of us know all fluorescent bulbs have had mercury content and have needed special recycling for years?
