Bottom line: the government is spending $1.5 billion-with-a-b so people can continue to watch TV after the digital switchover. That's around 10% of the money that's allocated for NASA for fiscal 2008.

(As a side note, the DHS budget is about twice that of NASA's. Wouldn't it be cool if we could eliminate DHS and triple NASA's budget?)
