Well, it may sound hysterical, but there's a lot of truth to it.  I live in
a very rural area in one of the poorest counties of Maine.  A lot of our
senior citizens have only roof antennas, and some of them live on very
meager fixed incomes.  It's hard to argue with the assertion that buying a
converter box won't be a financial burden to them.  I don't know of any
program around here in which help will be offered.  -Doug
