And the Silver Pen Award goes to …

Dear Editor:

The new solar-paneled parking meters are pretty spiffy, but those responsible for their installation might have benefited from a brief tutorial on the sun’s aspect and angle of incidence here in the Northern Hemisphere.

I wonder how they are holding up, particularly the ones pointed at the side of three-story buildings. Maybe they are actually shade-powered.
