Only the few without cable or dishes will need to get the almost free converter boxes and the US govt. refund vouchers. It's all a plot by Japan to get back at us, they and the Germans invented everything long ago and are slowly releasing it. It's like the glowing piece of metal that landed in France with "property of the third Reich" stamped on it
I bet by next summer there will be a lot of 50cent converter boxes at yard sales.

Just put in or take out or change the subject of any of the facts to make your point, use that program the students did to write the engineerese jiberish filled paper to almost win the grant for innovative projects not too long ago. Oops I probably used my newbie allotment of space and will get censured.
