1. This morning I inadvertently caught a few minutes of the local Fox affiliate’s news broadcast. Naturally, they had a reporter stationed at Best Buy talking to people who were buying things. TVs. On credit. Since HDTVs are supposedly the big-ticket item this year, I thought I would do my part as an American, member of the quasi-MSM, and incorrigible gadget hound, to give slightly more reasonable real-world, real-person advice than you may be getting from other sources.
