It took me forever to notice this (maybe because I haven't been looking at The Friend), but I was tickled yesterday by the fact that the light bulb in the lamp on the front cover of the May 2008 issue (illustrated by Elise Black) is an energy efficient light bulb.
Now, the LDS Church has been encouraging us to behave in an environmentally friendly manner for the better part of three decades (or more). But I was still excited to see this depiction. It sends the message that energy saving light bulbs are “normal.”
