What Do You Say To These Folks?

June 14, 2009

Yesterday the opening line in the newspaper about the digital TV transition  started off with this sentence, which I think also struck the right tone.

Despite a year-long effort by the government, broadcasters and cable operators to warn people of the digital-TV switch, about 2.8 million households remained completely unprepared as of Wednesday, according to Nielsen Co.

How can anyone be completely unprepared after the endless articles, and news stories about the end of analog broadcasts?  It baffles the mind to think it possible.

My theory to the question posed by my post is that perhaps some people are beyond help.
