I am outraged at the assertions made by Tom Coughlin of Comcast in his letter to The Sun ( "Comcast provides competitive services in Baltimore," July 9). His claims that Comcast operates in a highly competitive market are laughable. Comcast is our only realistic option, and if any one dares to opt out of any of Comcast's services, he/she will see the price for the other services go up. Yes - drop one service in an effort to lower your bill and instead you end up paying more. It is a nasty game that is played out every single time a Comcast promotion ends or a new service is introduced.

As head of the Comcast region serving Baltimore City, I would like to address and correct inaccuracies about our local offerings in this paper's recent commentary entitled "Faster, cheaper, better broadband in Baltimore" (June 30). Comcast operates in a highly competitive marketplace, and our Baltimore City customers already receive our fastest high-speed Internet and advanced video, voice and smart home technologies. We deliver the same speeds in Baltimore City today as we do across other parts of Maryland, with the same competitive standalone Internet prices and special bundled packages and promotions.

Now that the Maryland Public Service Commission has bowed to the inevitable by granting Baltimore County cab drivers a rate increase to cover skyrocketing gas prices, you can bet Baltimore city cab rates won't be far behind. We wouldn't mind paying more per mile if we only could get a cab; this city undoubtedly has the worst taxi service in the region.Why that's so is a mystery -- especially given that neighboring Washington has excellent service and even in the suburbs along the Baltimore-Washington corridor, a taxi is just a phone call away.

No doubt there were some lumps in throats at Amtrak headquarters last month when they heard the words "collapse" and "rail line" in Baltimore. As it happens, it was a CSX freight line that was affected by the loss of a 120-year-old retaining wall in Charles Village that sent tons of dirt, pavement and cars spilling onto the tracks below. But it might have been the Baltimore and Potomac Tunnel, Amtrak's only passage through West Baltimore. It's 140 years old and can't accommodate more than two tracks, double-stacked trains or speeds above 30 miles per hour.

In a move to go head to head with more upscale retailers, the mass discounter is bringing the new beauty program to 27 stores in Baltimore, Washington and Northern Virginia. It's part of fulfilling Target's "Expect More. Pay Less," motto, the Minneapolis retailer says. Each store will get a full time "brand agnostic beauty enthusiast" who can answer shoppers' questions about beauty and personal care products.
