What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Gadfly to 'Plain the Madoff Mess on Fox Business Network," concerning Marty Aussenberg's appearance on the January 5th show:

"Gadfly, that's effing hilarious. Fox is a clown show. You couldn't hurt your credibility if you dressed up like Bozo." — Jeff

About "RNC Hopeful Saltsman in Hot Water over 'Magic Negro' Lyric," by Jackson Baker:

"The problem is that this guy stands at the head of the Republican Party — one of a few who are running to head up the RNC — and yet he has no common sense whatsoever. I would fully expect people at his level to be a tad smarter than to stoop to an 8th grader's level (no offense to 8th graders)." — clint

About "20 Questions: Will the Memphis Zoo Avoid Controversy [in 2009]":

"Hell, just cut ALL the trees down and do away with the park; that'll get rid of the pervs and the riffraff. In fact, we could just shut down the whole city and then the police would have a much easier job." — packrat

About "Coal Sludge Disaster Devastates East Tennessee River and Environs":

"Coal about as clean as Bush's track record. You get what you deal. ... Anyone got a size 10 loafer for TVA?" — The_Unicorn_of_Memphis

Comment of the Week:

About "No Frist in Governor's Race? Then Gibbons, Maybe Norris," by Jackson Baker:

"I know the AP style guide doesn't specify, but it's a good idea for online editions to always make clear the Norris in question isn't Chuck in the headline." — fancycwabs
