Are you hoarding incandescent light bulbs?

USA Today recently reported that thousands of consumers were hoarding incandescent light bulbs as the federal government continues to put the dimmer on Thomas Alva Edison's most famous invention. A new energy bill is requiring a phase-out of incandescent light bulbs in favor of more efficient compact fluorescent bulbs by 2020. The problem for me is, I live in a vintage home where some of the vintage lighting fixtures were designed to showcase the Wizard of Menlo Park's nifty invention: no shades, no globes, just the bare bulbs.
