[opendtv] Re: Truthiness 2

I did say network, right :-)  On that note, I was very sad to hear last Friday 
about the demise of Sinclair's News Central due to (I was told by a 
non-Sinclair fellow) current economic realities.  

Your equation begs the question, since the FCC tabled consideration of COFDM 
until the DTV transition is further along (to be truthful, they might have 
meant 'never.')

I see that liberal 'babe' Joan Claybrook's Public Citizen has filed a lawsuit 
on the recent budget "compromise" that appears to be unconstitutional and which 
also sets the analog sunset date in 2009.  If successful, this suit will undo 
what congress did.

That might create a political peg upon which to hang consideration of COFDM; 
certainly the transition will be futher along in three years.  What's the 
proper "decent interval" to wait
