Apparently the TV woodchuck saw his shadow and there will be six more weeks of analog TV. Even the one local station that swore they were going to go completely digital today announced last night that they will hold off until midApril–even while the crawl at the bottom of the screen said the change was coming on February 17th. That means we will have another couple of months of crawls, promos and informericals–one of the latter tonight as a matter of fact.
One thing that will be nice, maybe by midApril it will be warm enough for, at least the hardier souls, to climb up on the roof to reaim their antennas. Only Congress would enact a law whereby the deadline for a change like this, which would require outside work, was scheduled to take place in the dead of winter.
