Comment of the Day: The Great $70 Bank Robbery

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 an elaborately planned Ocean's 11-style bank robbery where a crew disabled the alarms and phones and went undetected throughout the night at an East Texas bank. Their haul: $70. In change.

One reader tried to imagine the scene.
