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.

Yesterday we wrote about the death of a teacher/coach at Stratford High, who was walking a woman to her car when he was assaulted by her angry husband. One punch and an awkward fall later, and Christopher Matthews was injured so seriously he died late Sunday.
One commenter felt the need to jump in and accuse the married Matthews of cheating, and some backlash developed.
if you don't know what your talking about then don't say anything at all. coach matthews cared about everyone he knew. he was walking her to her car because she was afraid of her husband. coach matthews was married just this summer and was in no way having an affair. you didn't know who he was, so don't go talking about stuff you don't know. he was a great person and is going to be missed so dearly. we all love you coach.
