Los Angeles Times reader representative Deirdre Edgar writes about changes made to the paper recently in the wake of reader complaints.

Edgar writes, “Cuts to the Daily Market Roundup in the Business section have drawn a number of calls and e-mails as well. One specific source of puzzlement was the elimination of the British pound in the foreign currencies list.

“Claudia Albert called to say, ‘In your new Business section, I’m not sure why you don’t think the British pound is important in the currencies.’

“And Sara Lafare wrote, ‘How can you possibly have a section on currencies and leave out pound sterling?? Only one of the most important currencies in the world. (I’m not British.)’

“That omission is being fixed, and the pound will again be listed starting Friday.”
