Comment of the Day: Not Buying the Explanation from Diane Tran's Judge

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 the judge in the Diane Tran case, who issued a semi-explanation of his decision to jail the honors student who was working two jobs.

Readers weren't buying it.

Duh, hey judge, your intention is to see that every student take advantage of their opportunity to earn their diploma? I think Miss Tran was doing that, until you intervened. Put a honor student working two jobs in jail. Yeah that will show her! Hard work and hard studying will land you in jail along with drug dealers. Geeeeze, what is our world coming to!
