I see that Emily's name is not highlighted. Perhaps she's a highschool student? For reasons lost on me, this newspaper occasionally publishes articles written by students, housewives, the lawn mower man, etc.

Why is "Earth" capitalized throughout this article? I'm consulting several grammar references and most of them say to not capitalize "earth", especially when referring to "the earth".

“People think if they don’t buy Clorox or something similar, their house won’t be as clean. It’s just not true." Umm. Clorox cleans really well. And you're not taking my paper towels away, either.

Cromwell neglects to mention that those 'free' Westar Energy 'WattSaver' thermostats, while being electronic and programmable, also give Westar control over your air conditioning during the summer:

"Demands...are highest from June through September. At these times, we may cycle participants' central air conditioners. Your thermostat will display "SAVING," your compressor will operate [at] 50% of its normal run time...and the system fan will...circulate air. You have complete control over how your thermostat is programmed, except during cycling events."

This is scary and so Orwellian. Westar--you're staying out of my living room. I for one do not support this program and the effort of any utility to control my usage! And neither should anyone else.
