Damn the lights!
What is with this fad with super-bright lights? First it was the pupil-searing headlights on new cars, and now these excruciatingly bright house lights are popping up everywhere. I'm ready to declare war on my neighbors for installing gazillion-watt lights on every conceivable part of their houses -- front stoops, back stoops, side walkways, garage doors, and wherever else they can flood the night with these supernovas-in-a-socket. Why is this necessary? Can no one can tolerate a little darkness anymore?
