Comment of the Day: Ecstasy Outrage

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 a seven-year-old who took hos father's Ecstasy stash to school and passed it around. This outraged one reader, although probably not in the way you'd expect.

That's horrible! I can't find ecstasy ANYWHERE, and some 7-year-old is casually passing it out at school??! Come on kids, leave the good stuff for the grown-ups, okay?
