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.

As part of our build-up to the popular December holiday of "Christmas," our Sean Pendergast offered some perplexing questions about the television specials this Druid celebration has spawned.

One reader offered some insight into the ritual surrounding what cultists calle "The Grinch."

Jared had this to say:

Question #2 re the Grinch: I know Cindy Lou Who was no more than two, but how the fuck do you mistake a skinny, green-goblin-looking gremlin with no white beard and a scratchy voice for Santy Claus? Dumbest kid ever.

Still my favorite of the X-Mas specials, though. And on the bright side for Max, he did get a nice thick tasty piece of Roast Beast in the very end.

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.
