Comment of the Day

Eating Our Words has some damn fine commenters, who bring honest and often insightful comments to our blog posts. In short, you guys rule, but your rule-age makes it difficult to pick a comment every day and today was no exception, but one rose above the others for obvious reasons.

Bravo, Evan. BRA-VO! Anyone else care to weigh in?
