Comment of the Day: Don't Mess With...Romance-Novel Fans

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 item on the Texas Department of Transportation suing a romance author for using the title Don't Mess With Texas drew a bunch of comments and a classic put-down.

Dear Early,

Did your wife give you that nickname? Well, darlin', that's why she reads romance.
