Waiting for the Switch to Digital TV

I am totally annoyed with the whole DTV switch.  

First off, the government is paying for those boxes.  ANYONE can get them.  I know people who are more than able to afford the boxes, which they don’t even need because they have digital cable, who got the government coupons and purchased multiple boxes.  Why are we paying for those at all, anyway?  Television is not a necessity.  I know lots of people who don’t even own a TV, let alone worry about the DTV switchover.

Secondly, the government is now suddenly concerned with whether or not everyone will be ready.  People, you’ve been discussing this for at least two years!!  If people aren’t ready now, after I don’t know how much of my money has gone to ads on TV for the last year, they won’t be ready in June, either.  No matter how much you talk about it, there will always be a segment of the population who will just not do anything until they don’t have a TV signal any more.  Stop acting like their Mommy and make them be grownups.  Just make the switch already!
