One can only hope.  And when they design this system, I hope they  
take into account that there's a large geographical area in parts of  
Worcester and many suburbs that needs more service.  This is not a  
Back Bay-size hole that needs a small translator.  Meanwhile, channel  
27 really ought to consider putting English on one or more of their  
subchannels.  They can build a decent audience with all the Worcester  
County people whose digital converters can only find this signal.
