W. Virginia Senator Pushes for 3-Month DTV Delay
Don't want further delay? Then why don't YOU do something to help?!
So, if you want no further delay in the DTV transition date, then take a step back from your keyboard, get off your ass, and do something to help expedite the transition.
Go door to door and ensure that every household in your neighborhood already has an ATSC capable TV, an ATSC converter, or at least a converter coupon. Every household extends to the 82 year old Social Security widow, the Spanish speaking family w/ only small children who speak English, and the blind man living alone -- all of whom may live in a small town 20 miles from the nearest Wal-Mart. If any household is not ready for the transition, then volunteer to help that household get ready. That may entail redeeming a coupon to acquire a converter, paying out of pocket the difference between the coupon value and the converter price, and/or installing & configuring a converter for the household.
And if you are not willing to do any of that, then you accept the status quo. So, quit complaining.
