Diminishing returns

So it turns out our neighbors at the United Nations participated in "Earth Hour," Saturday's silly demonstration in which people shut off their lights for an hour to show their concern about some cause or another. Fox News phoned the world body to ask how much it would be saving on its electric bill, and the answer came back $81,000.

But it turns out the estimate was in error: "After the story appeared on FOXNews.com, a spokeswoman called back to say their estimate was incorrect and the savings was $24,000, but then called back a third time to say it was really $102."

We are waiting for the next phone call and/or the next idiotic such stunt.
