The story at the link below discusses how a senior citizen in Wilmington, NC received help from her local fire department with hooking up a digital tuner to her TV. The story also explains how that won't be exceptional when the rest of the country switches to digital TV next February.

This looks like the perfect opportunity for some young entrepeneurs to make a few bucks. It is time for them to start advertising in their local papers. $15 - $20 dollars sounds like a fair price to connect convertors for people that aren't capable.

Those that can,........ do. Those that can't,........ pay.
