Why in the world do we cater to procrastinators? A deadline is a deadline.

Starr's Mill obscured by Snow. Photo by Richard WeisserI wonder how many people got home from work last night and turned on their televisions, only to see static and snow?

The switch to digital broadcasting has been announced for years, and the opportunity to get free converter boxes has been drummed into our heads over and over.

The deadline had been extended at least twice, in an effort to make certain that the public was fully informed about this major technological switch.

And yet, I am certain, that many, many procrastinators were caught unaware yesterday.

No matter how many times you extend a deadline, there are some people that will just wait and wait and wait.

Oh, that reminds me, I need to start collecting my income tax records for 2008!

LOL...one of my pet peeves (yes, you can imagine I am always the one who arrives early) is when a meeting is called for a certain time, yet the same folks repeatedly show up late.  START THE MEETING and don't recap.  Maybe eventually some of them will get the message. It's self centered and rude. /rant over/

Hi Richard,

you are probably right...I'm sure there are many people who weren't prepared for the switch, and now they are looking for someone to blame.

Richard- What is so bad about this situation is my husband and I were using the countdown to Feb 17th as the countdown to the birth of our daughter.  She came early on February 2nd and is now 4 months old!  One local station also had some other changes so it is constantly on there if someone you know can't get channel xyz please have them rescan or call this number for help.
