Y2K generator radio adgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I heard on the radio tonight about 8:15 pm an advertisement of a local store for its propane generators.
It began with 15-20 seconds of discussion regarding the likelihood of "power outage" in January.
Next came 20 seconds discussing the store's wide selection of generators.
The final 20 seconds was to invite the public to buy what the store had on hand or put your name on a waiting list; and a reminder that even if the power doesn't go out January 1, the generator will still be useful during a major storm.
The radio station was in Atlanta.
It looks to me like the Y2K message is about to go mainstream via retailers' advertising.

The talk radio station in Louisville is running an ad for a business offering Y2K remediation service to other businesses. The ad mentions the estimate that Y2K will cause $1 trillion in lawsuits.

After all the major corporations spend their profits on remediation, and the smaller companies go belly up, who in the hell are they going to sue? Yeh, let's sue Little Valley Bank and put them out of business for good. Let's spend millions of dollars and get nothing out of it! It's going to be the other way around, there just isn't going to be anything left to sue over! Bye, bye you blood sucking lawyers!
