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 Lucky Ward, Houston's newest serial killer, who has been tied to five strangulation deaths in 2010.
HPD says they have DNA evidence to back up their charges, but one reader wasn't so eager to jump on board.
An old cop reporter from Big D wrote:
OK, I remember the Press's wrenching coverage of Ms. Mundy's disappearance--she texted her mother that she was worried about the Hispanic man who supposedly was helping her after her car conked out.
Just wondering if the law is trying to clear up a slew of cases, a la Henry Lee Lucas, the supposed serial killer in the '80s, who regaled law enforcement with tales of murder whilst dining on steak and puffing cigars....
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.
