Comment of the Day: Jon Matthews & KPFT

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 or afternoon 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 Jon Matthews, the former fire-breathing Clinton-bashing talk-show host who's a sexual offender and just got dropped from KPFT's Prison Show.

One reader noted the irony.

For a guy like Matthews, having to take a job at KPFT might have felt like rock bottom. I wonder how he feels about the "American Sniffle Liberties Union" now?
