  1. On February 18th at 7:13pm you “picknicked”? That’s a pretty funny typo!

  2. I’m glad there is plenty of money in the budget for 700 million hours of PSAs on this, and that they somehow manage to not actually inform anyone about what exactly is going to happen.

  3. I can’t believe you would joke about something as serious as this.

  4. You are being featured on Five Star Friday:

  5. Excellent, hilarious read. It took me a while to get it as I am not American.

  6. “I’m glad there is plenty of money in the budget for 700 million hours of PSAs on this, and that they somehow manage to not actually inform anyone about what exactly is going to happen.”

    They made the cable companies pay for the PSAs. Since the cable companies do not make any money if everyone just gets a free-to-cheap converter box and watches the free digital instead of buying basic cable, the PSAs dance around this issue in a rather uninformative way and their customer service reps are given no training on it, by and large.
