So the Senate has decided that two years of annoying TV commercials warning the US public of the change from analogue to digital wasn't enough. Now we're going to postpone the changeover until June, huh? The fear that caused the Senate to take this step is the assumption that too many Americans are not ready yet.

If we made the change when we said we would I bet those procrastinators would get off their lazy butts and go buy the stupid little converter boxes when they no longer got a usable signal. Instead, we'll put it off for the sake of a bunch of morons who still won't be ready in June.

Look for a coming Government program to buy, deliver and install the converter box for these slugs.

And the probability that such a delay will cost the industry (and of course eventually us) millions of dollars isn't really significant.
