To the Editor:

Kudos to Paul Maxwell for summarizing the crazy dynamic ownership changes in our industry in his "And Then There Were…" predictions column (Jan. 8-21 issue).

I had just finished reading articles called "Cablevision Board Rejects Newest Offer…" and "Verizon to Sell Phone Assets to FairPoint…" in the morning’s The New York Times when I flipped open my copy of CableWorld and read Maxwell’s "My Back Page" column. Talk about being right on target! Not only was his column right on point, but it also made me laugh out loud.

Thanks for keeping us informed and laughing.

To the Editor:

In the "Legislative Update" column in the Dec. 4-17, 2006, issue of CableWorld, the map headlined "Francishing: The State of the Union" is wrong! You have the state of Michigan in maroon — but the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is in white (along with Wisconsin). The Upper Peninsula is part of the state of Michigan — not part of the state of Wisconsin. I am surprised your map didn’t reflect that.

CORRECTION: In the Feb. 5-18 issue, the article "Cable — Make That Broadband — Programmers Break the Linear Mold" reported that Starz Entertainment launched its movie download service Vongo in January 2005. Vongo launched in January 2006.
