Well, HEY!!! The New York Times reports that coal-burning stoves are having a renaissance in private homes.
Now I know what to do with all the coal I got in my Christmas stocking. This couldn't come at a better time -- baby, it's cold outside!
I also found this fun little ad for coal from the early 1950s. The girl in the ad is very . . . Marilyn Monroe-ish, no?
