Cox will "address" Council

PR flack Sharon Kleinpeter will have the unenviable task Tuesday night of airly explaining to the Lafayette City-Parish Council Cox's decision to drop the weather channel on basic cable shortly after Hurricane Ernesto moves past Cuba on a path toward the Gulf Coast. And Cox does have an explanation for the community's vocal distress:
"It's just change. People don't like change,"
Get real. People think Cox doesn't have their best interests at heart and don't trust their explanations of much of anything anymore. When you look at the raw arrogance of this rationale it's not hard to see why. The real reason, of course, is to move the popular channels onto a more expensive tier and to extract a little extra cash from the community.

Cox is going down to the Council to explain themselves Tuesday night. If you think that Cox has plenty to explain you might want to go down to the council meeting yourself. --Pick up a "green card" as you go in, fill it out, and hand it in and you'll get your chance to say what you think of Cox.
