Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

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.

Some people were still scratching their heads over an Advocate list that said Houston was not one of the 15 most gay cities in the country.

Then readers noted how one of the criteria was how many residents were registered to gay.com, and they were off.

Ruh Roh said:

Something tells me the gay.com factor played heavily...Those of us in Montrose, West Hollywood, and Chelsea need only to drive/walk/train to "our" neighborhoods and hang out at our multiple bars to bag a trick as opposed to having to skulk around on gay.com in between suicide attempts because we live in sh*t towns like St, Louis or Minneapolis...

To which Katy replied:

That's what my gf said when I mentioned the article: "Oh, we're supposed to register as gay to be counted?"

If I was gay in St. Louis, I'd probably spend a lot of time online, too...

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
