    I just want to pass on my warmest wishes to whatever group of Senators and Congresspersons who thought we needed mandated digital television... Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Bill

    Just had a bout of severe weather that knocked out the power and forced the family into the tornado shelter. Flashlights check, cell phone check, emergency radio check, but the portable TV's no longer work, and no digital converter box will work without power. Coupon or not.

    Congress had to get their grubby little hands on that bandwidth.

    Thanks for keeping me safe !
