Comment of the Day: A Hurricane to Break the Drought?

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We polled readers on whether they'd be willing to accept a tropical storm or hurricane in order to help end the drought.

Some were hesitant to take their chances with the tropical storm, and one reader vividly explained why.
