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 Rice Village's chic Hudson Lounge, which found itself in a flap over whether allegations of racism were true concerning a fiasco of a party.
It led one reader to examine the worlds of difference that exist between two almost-neighbors.
Compare and contrast Hudson Lounge to The Big Easy just down a few doors down. One is a real bar, with real entertainment, owned by a guy with a real interest in the music and musicians that he personally books and sometimes plays with onstage.
There is no dress code, or puffy ambition to be 'upscale', and diversity reigns supreme there: not just among races, but among socio-economic groups too. It's night and day between how to run a club. But to each his own, of course; just observing.
