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.
Our headline told the story: "Rick Perry Nearly Doubles Buddy Roemer's New Hampshire Vote in Impressive Show of Strength."
The item talked about how "the Rick Perry juggernaut" had overpowered the Buddy Roemer campaign.
One reader was mad.
"The Rick Perry juggernaut continued to lay waste to GOP primary opponents, neatly dispatching former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary."
You really print that with a straight face? I mean REALLY? Perry was near the bottom of the heap of actual GOP candidates and you print that like he's near the top? Idiots.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
