I found this hidden among the 1100-plus comments we've received to date. It's anonymous, and must be evaluated accordingly, but it also happens to be the third mention to me of a mysterious episode that's said to have occurred on Oct. 19 when Mona Shaw -- the Comcast "Hammer Lady" -- was featured on Good Morning America.
I happen to live in the same county as Mona. Talk around town is that last week when Good Morning America was running their piece on Mona, the ABC channel on Comcast mysteriously went dark. I have a long-standing hatred of Comcast, but I must admit that even I didn't think that they would stoop to that level.

One of my other sources on this was Mona Shaw herself, who says she's heard complaints from church friends who told her they'd tried to see the ABC segment but found their screens suddenly going blank. I have had some difficulty running this one down, so I'll simply address the question to Comcast: Did any Northern Virginia subscribers suddenly lose service in the middle of that broadcast?
