Comment of the Day: How to Find Jessica Tata

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 gave you an update on the search for Jessica Tata, the owner of the daycare where four children died in a fire. One reader said she had some insight.

Jessica's mother was my child's nurse a few years ago. Her mother, Josie, was nice but eventually became irresponsible and very careless professionally, which led to her termination. From many discussions with her mother, I strongly believe her children, except the oldest, were spoiled, as Josie continued to indulge their lifestyles with ensuing credit card debt. Also, I believe Josie strongly encouraged Jessica to leave the states. If one wanted to find Jessica, I'd recommend keeping track of all the family members communications, especially internet. My observation was that Jessica was a spoiled and careless American. Consequently, she will need money, a new identity and friends to help her survive in Africa. My strong belief is that she only speaks English.

What can we do in the states? Pray for the families, and be reminded that no day care or equivalent will ever love or care for children as much as their own parents.
