Comment of the Day: Dominique Sachse As Cinderella

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 wrote about the annoying hype surrounding KPRC anchor Dominique Sachse's "intimate" wedding.

One reader noted it wasn't quite the Cinderella story the station and the Houston Chronicle made it out to be.

I'm happy for her but the publicity was outrageous. I tuned in in KPRC when the weather forcast came on they said how it would be terrific for Dominique's wedding, then when another segment came on they somehow refered to Dominique again. Then they announced Rachel McNeill would be covering the event. Seriously? Dominique is not an average single mom. She was wealthy before this marriage and wealthier now. This is not the wedding of say someone who is battling cancer and this is their dream come true.

They should have just come out and say it like it is. This is a wedding of a Houston celebrity who has alot of money marrying someone with even more money. Instead of reporting it like the Cinderella story of Houston, it should have just been touted as the wedding of the year with all the glamour and poshness of a River Oaks wedding. I would have respected that alot more than what was reported.
