We keep hearing about how the switch to digital television is going to be delayed. Apparently the bill was defeated today. My big question is when did television become something that was considered a necessity? Why is the government giving coupons in the first place so people can watch tv? Wouldn't we all be better off with less tv anyways? And finally, whatever happened to personal responsibily in the matter? If you didn't get your coupons and boxes when they have been telling you too for the last year then too bad. Don't get me wrong. We probably watch too much tv at our house ourselves. However, if we weren't prepared for the switch over, too bad, our family would be better off without tv anyways. Here is the link to the story.
