Light Emitting Resistor

Just found this in the Akron Beacon Journal (OHIO)
Two questions: What is a light emitting resistor?
Is it simular to a SED? ;-)

A incandescent lamp is a light emitting resistor.
This ploy of asking for such experience sets is not new. It was used to justify hiring a foreigner instead of a citizen. The idea was to show that such an engineer was not available domesticly at any price.

Let me ask this again with a little less humor, does the TLA (3 letter acronym) LER have any meaning with respect to the context, " Bailey Infi DCS (Distributed Control System) & associated LER's".
I'm assuming that the HR type that wrote this as didn't know what LER meant and did a look up on the web where light emitting resistor is the most common definition.
