Comment of the Day: Our Houstonian-ness Is Questioned

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 how local rightwingnut radio host Michael Berry is bringing New York to its knees through a boycott in response to NY Senator Chuck Schumer's disparaging (if true) remarks about Houston, made in the wake of local complaints about not getting a space shuttle.

We were taken to task.
