What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "A Place to Call Home," by Bianca Phillips:

"Good on you, Bianca! It is disgraceful for the Mayor to be lining his own pockets while buildings stand empty and Memphis has no plan for the homeless population — besides harassing them, that is." — denise parkinson

About "Lutrell Now Weary of Running for 'Weak-Mayor' Job," by Jackson Baker:

"The 'half-white' paradigm is straight out of Chick publications in the dying days of the Dixiecrats. It was part of the campaign against miscegenation to imply that any children of a mixed marriage would be 'zebras,' neither black nor white." — tseneau

About the hiring of Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins in "Back to the Future," by Chris Herrington:

"I am among those that shrugged when his hiring was announced. Now, I am starting to be a bit more optimistic. Can you imagine the Tigers without the 'dribble drive'? You go with what you have and don't spend a lot of time trying to turn young, fast, athletic players into Bird, Ainge, McHale, and Parish." — 38103

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant," where Tim Sampson discusses the proposed stimulus package:

"Obama's constant comparison to the Great Depression is a slap in the face to the people who actually experienced it. We are nowhere near the Great D. However, the Dems have succeeded in convincing millions of ignorant Americans that we are."
