PBS pointlessly probes Y2K bug


"According to this condescending and dopey hour hosted by author and cybergeek Robert X. Cringely, our only legitimate fear is the emotional reaction to the uncertainty of it all. In other words, Y2K is really just U2Paranoid. Pop a couple of Prozac and fuggedaboudit. Whew! That's a relief. If only it were that simple."

Lotsa pressure to SHUT UP & KEEP THE LID ON

Well, bravo to a journalist who had the insight and the guts to slam a pointless happy-face program! This was a well-written piece by a definite GI reporter who covered all the show's spin cycles. Can we get this guy to cover Koskinen now?

I would appreciate it if the person who posted before me would use their own handle and not borrow mine.
