Comment of the Day: The Astrodome Debate Sounds Familiar To Detroit

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 pondered again the endless series of plans, studies and delays in deciding just what to do with the white elephant known as the Astrodome.

One reader from up north said it unfortunately sounded familiar.

I moved from the Detroit area to Houston in 2006, and watching the saga of the Astrodome play out over the past 6 years is eerily reminiscent to the way Detroit slowly but completely botched a dozen different plans to save or renovateTiger Stadium, until finally the only choice left was to demolish the old gem of a ballpark.
