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 latest weirdness in hand doctor Michael Brown's case, in which Brown's lawyers claim the attorney for his ex-wife called them by the c-word and implied one was a hooker, among other remarks.
It led one reader who claimed to be a lawyer to submit a heartfelt plea.
What a cesspool of attorney waste. Since I am also a member of the State Bar, it is my misfortune to see such behavior, if not daily, certainly frequently. Kids: go to medical school, plumbing school, culinary school, physical therapy school or art school. Just stay the hell away from all law schools. You only have one life.
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.
