Comment of the Day: Our Lack of Internal Beauty

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 the Rockets hired Kevin McHale as their new coach, we asked, with pictures, whether he might have been separated at birth from former Rockets coach Rudy T. We might have mentioned their resemblance, when the light is right, to Lurch of Addams Family fame.

Shame on us, said one reader.

Richard - Your comment about Kevin McHale's looks says more about your lack of internal beauty than anything about McHale's external appearance. Freedom of the press means you CAN say pretty much anything you want. That doesn't make it a good idea to record for posterity whatever small-minded comments you can dream up. Instead of going all Simon Cowell on the guy, why not discuss how qualified a candidate he is to be the Rockets' coach. Oh yeah, that would require some knowledge of the subject on your part. Nevermind.
