Comment Of The Day: Victims Speak Out

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.

Our item this week on a group of youths who broke into cemeteries to steal urns and other metal objects continued to draw a response, including one from relatives of the person buried in one of the graves they stole from.

We are the parents of a murdered child and one of the vases these SOB's stole was our daughter's. You have to be a real low life SOB to steal from the Dead. I hope everyone of these lazy, no good white drugged out trash goes to jail for along time. These punks and the old man would rather steal from the Dead than work. Sickening!!!
