What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "It's D-Day To Decide New County Commissioner," by Jackson Baker:

"For the Dems to appoint a Democrat to this seat would be a big mistake. I'm as partisan as the next fella, but vacancy appointments should never flip a district. It's a Republican seat, and it should remain so ... until the next election." — Brad Watkins

About "Tennessee GOP Legislators Support Lawsuit Challenging Obama Citizenship":

"It's probably just because Casada, Campbell, and Nicely couldn't make it all the way through the Constitution, didn't quite make it to the 14th Amendment ("Aw, hell, it's just a footnote," Casada might have said) and therefore think [Obama's] only 3/5 of a citizen, instead of a whole one."

About "Cost of Liberty Bowl ADA Improvements: $40 million or $4.7 Million?" by John Branston:

"Let me see if I have this right: the most handicapped seats ever used in one game was 50? The stadium already has 119 handicapped seats and we're being told we have to spend $40 million to add 100 more? This is the very definition of over-regulated insanity!" — ole miss

Comment of the Week:

About "Tennessee GOP Legislators Support Lawsuit Challenging Obama Citizenship":

"I am reminded of going to the zoo and watching the monkeys fling their feces against the walls of their enclosure. The stench is about as bad, too." — B
