Comment of the Day: What? The Heights-Area Walmart Will Cause Problems?

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.

Critics say the Yale Street Bridge is in bad shape, and the planned Heights-area Walmart will only make things worse.

One reader said no one should be surprised.
