A few months ago, I wrote about Congress deciding that no one should be left without television when digital broadcasting becomes required. It’s still on track and still stupid. Nothing new is out about this fiscal misadventure, but George Will has an excellent take on the story in today’s Washington Post. Read the whole thing, but I want to point out my favorite line when I read the article this morning on the train. Enjoy:
… the timeless truth that no matter how deeply you distrust the government’s judgment, you are too trusting.
I’d be very proud of myself if I’d written that.

Is this called NTLB? (No Television Left Behind?)
George Will called it “No Couch Potato Left Behind”.
I’d love to see a time-series graph of rooftop antennas and “rabbit ears” over the past 40 years.
