Analog to Digital Conversion

Hopefully, you have been exempted from the excruciatingly repetitive advertisements warning of the shift from analog to digital television broadcasting. They air during what seems like every commercial break, and are more annoying than Surfing Bird. I've been counting down the days in hopes I'd never need to see another commercial. But congress has decided to delay the shift because apparently not everyone is aware.

Kudos to Missouri Rep. Roy Blunt for getting to the point: "If you don't know this date is coming up, you're probably not watching television, and if you're not watching television, you probably won't know on February 18 whether it occurred or not."

Just make the switch, and let me enjoy my good ol' fashioned US commercials again. God bless America.
