Comment of the Day: Alternatives to Arming School Board Members
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.
Yesterday we wrote about one Kingwood state rep's noble effort to arm school board members and district superintendents at their public meetings.

There are other alternatives, one reader noted.
If arming school board members doesn't solve anything, I'd like to suggest a couple other possibilities:
a) More prayer during school board meetings. They might need to post the Ten Commandments and the Gospel of Matthew on the wall, just to be safe; and b) Tax cuts for the richest folks in the district.
Nobody needs to mention these ideas to the school board. Elected officials in Texas tend to come up with them on their own.
