Comment of the Day: Cat Killings Could Signal the Birth of a Serial Killer

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 or afternoon 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 post about the gruesome and continuing cat killings in Inner Loop neighborhoods caused several readers to offer an analysis of what kind of person would do something like this.

Crime Stoppers offered its standard "up to $5,000" reward for information, but some people thought that wasn't enough.

Why only $5,000 for the reward?? Most people who torture and kill animals move on to serial killing. Do we have to wait till this person is doing this to humans before we really get involved?? This is disgusting and dangerous behavior and it needs a lot more attention than what it's getting.
