What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Complete Street," a plan to improve Main Street that includes the return of cars, by Mary Cashiola:

"Many of the old, worn-out buildings should be bulldozed and fresh, added parking created. O.K. — let's save a handful of historically important buildings. But many of the old storefronts have no significant history to them. Clear them out and let more parking thrive. That's what we really want and need!" — David F. Diamond

"Once the popular exclusive retailers such as guess, polo, lacoste are lined along Main Street and entertainment becomes a priority people will return." —TigerDieHard

About "Ericson Opts Out of Impasse, Seeks New Procedures for Pyramid Solution," discussing the possible conversion of the arena into a Bass Pro Shops instead of Ericson's theme-park proposal, by Jackson Baker:

"Wow. How poorly this has played out. The theme park was a brilliant idea that seemed to make sense economically. The Bass Pro idea is terrible. Realistically, how much business will it do, especially since there's already a Bass Pro in Memphis? Common sense is a precious commodity indeed." — pcolinjr

Comment of the Week:

About "Ericson Opts Out of Impasse, Seeks New Procedures for Pyramid Solution," by Jackson Baker:

"With all these people flying in and out of Memphis to review the deal, Northwest Airlines should have had a good year." — tomguleff
