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.
To celebrate the 70th anniversary of "The Battle of Los Angeles," we offered five compelling reasons why the event really was a UFO attack like some experts have said, and not merely nervous antiaircraft gunners firing at weather balloons a couple months after Pearl Harbor.
One reader chimed in, and since he used all-caps everything he wrote is true.

THERE IS NO WAY THE FED is going 2 CONFESS 2 THE PUBLIC-''WE ARE BEING VISITED,but WE DO NOT KNOW WHO THEY ARE, WHERE THEY CAME FROM& WHAT ARE THE INTENTIONS OF THE ALIENS.''

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
