What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

From "Cohen Poll Bolsters Candidate's Confidence," Jackson Baker's column about a poll that shows Steve Cohen well ahead of challenger Nikki Tinker for reelection to the 9th Congressional District:

"Get all warm and fuzzy cause Nikki is fixin' to get her groove on!" — Toast

"Not even Stella could get Nikki's groove back ..." — LeftWingCracker

From "Twenty-Two Questions," by John Branston:

"Mr. Joe Clark would be an ideal school superintendent!"

— pamtheshamfizer

From "Complete Street," Mary Cashiola's article about ways to improve the Main Street Mall:

"I am all for making downtown as attractive and as bustling as possible, but we need to stop dreaming that this city can support retail that it has no record of supporting, in areas where the market clearly doesn't exist. The law school relocation will help the market downtown, but until more businesses ... and more residents move into downtown, the market for that kind of retail just doesn't exist." — Jack

Comment of the Week:

From "Ford Jurors See Tapes of Cooper's Payoffs" by John Branston:

"'A person calls you up and needs a favor. You do a favor. It's never 'this is a bribe,' tit for tat. He needs something, I need something, and it's handled.'" This sounds like a scene from Survivor, just before they vote someone off the island." — tomguleff
