Comment of the Day: Taking the Good With the Bad

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.

One reader agreed, but saw the bright side.

You are right. No upholstered seats, no air conditioning, no giant video board, no commercials between innings ... just the opportunity to see real Major League ball players in Houston for the first time. It was hot as Hades. But, ya know, it's Houston.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
