Re "What happened to customer service?," Column, Aug. 24 As I've gotten older, my intolerance for rudeness, vaingloriousness, deceitfulness and self-centeredness has increased.

Time Warner Cable has sought to downplay a report that its chief executive, Glenn Britt, was planning to leave the nation's second-largest cable company at the end of the year. The Wall Street Journal, citing an anonymous source, said Friday that Britt had decided to depart his position of 12 years, a tenure marked by large expansion in residential cable service, technological upgrades to broadband Internet and the 2009 separation from parent company Time Warner Inc.

Time Warner Cable subscribers in Los Angeles watching the Super Bowl in standard definition lost a big chunk of the game and halftime show due to technical issues. The analog signal of Fox's KTTV-TV Channel 11 Los Angeles went dark toward the end of the second quarter and was not repaired until about midway through the third quarter. However, the feed of Time Warner Cable's high-definition channel carrying Fox's coverage of the game was not interrupted. The majority of the region's subscribers have digital boxes and thus were not affected by the blackout.
