According to another journal, they're finally over, but they'll return like a resistant infection in 2010. Of course it's still not a good idea to turn on broadcast television as there is soon to be a political convention, followed by another political convention. And then campaign commercials and campaign coverage (for TV values of...) ad nauseum. Followed by election coverage, analysis, and the usual nonsense. By Feb 17 (the big US analog TV switch off) it might be a relief to have NTSC broadcasting go away.
