Comment of the Day: The Poop-Related Side Effects of Downtown Life

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 wrote about the guy who took a dump in our parking lot, because he was caught on camera from a nearby skyscraper.

One downtown resident says such things are a side benefit of the urban life.

I live a block from there. Part of the joy and mystique of living downtown is that any area even partially blocked from view of the street (in this case, behind an SUV) can and WILL be used as a toilet by some crackhead/wino/crazy person on a daily basis. Walk a little ways and check out the back corner of the empty lot next to the Savoy and see things that cannot be unseen.
