Comment of the Day: Parking in Houston
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 broke the news yesterday that Montrose's Lovett Inn was about to become a youth hostel. We noted it would need a parking variance, and one reader both questioned the need for a variance and the morals of Houston parking companies.
Parking variance? For a hostel? Usually backpackers and student travelers don't have cars. I realize this is Houston, but if you can only afford to stay in a hostel, you're probably not going to rent a car. The city and it's vulture-like parking barons are abysmal.
