The big ol’ Weed Wacker at 445 12th Street SW in Washington, D.C., is getting charged up for what Republican FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly has assured will be an event that impacts children and families.

O’Rielly expressed his thoughts Friday in a blog posting we’ve just digested, and we’re not shy to offer a RBR+TVBR Observation criticizing O’Rielly for this suggestion just as Next Gen TV is poised to make UHF and VHF far more relevant again.
