Comment of the Day: Pollution Priorities

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 told you about Shell Chemical paying the county $500,000 for not informing it of five pollution incidents at their Deer park plant.

One reader seemed to know why the misunderstanding occurred.

They probably laid off the people in charge of notifying the county to buy new flat-screen monitors.
