- from Thomas Edison
If cartoonists want to show that someone has a “bright idea,” they often draw a light bulb over the person’s head. This simple graphic image is more than a sign of enlightenment. It’s also a tribute to the genius of Thomas Alva Edison.
Edison didn’t “invent” electricity. Nor did he create the first electric lighting. But he did find a way to put electric lighting in homes and offices on a grand scale.
