Comment of the Day: A Race-Baiting Genius Gets His Comeuppance

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 showed the somewhat disturbing (in hindsight) Facebook updates of a woman who killed her two kids and then tried to commit suicide.

One genius commented "another day in the ghetto," and promptly received his deserved slap.
