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 a Pasadena youth pastor who, according to court documents, admitted to his girlfriend as marriage neared that when she was a teen and he was 26, he videotaped her and other underage girls in the shower at church. Felony charges of illegal videotaping were filed. (The DA's office has since dropped the charges because of the statute of limitations.)
One reader summed things up well and succinctly.
