Comment of the Day: The Only Way I-45 Could Be Worse

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 the five best and five worst stretches of Texas highway not in the Hill Country. One of the worst, of course, was the soul-sucking dullness of I-45 between Houston and Dallas.

One reader knew how it could be worse.
