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.
Yesterday we wrote about city councilwoman Jolanda Jones's eventful trip to a downtown fire station. Jones, who has been critical of the HFD union and its president Jeff Caynon, reportedly said such things as "You get all these fucking refrigerators and fucking stoves and we spend all this money on you. I'm supposed to ask what firefighers do, but I already know -- you sit on recliners and watch TV all day."
Jokingly giving the guys a hard time or really exposing her true feelings? Our readers disagreed.

Lighten the eff up on JoJo already. It is pretty gosh darn obvious to anyone with a sense of humor she was bantering, Caynon is just trying ti cash in up on his old vendetta, a la SJL.
Fidel, on the other hand, wrote:
Firefighters may have TV's and recliners, but I guarantee you as soon as those alarms go off, they don't wait for a commercial before they get up and go to a call.
Shame on Jolanda Jones.
