What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "The Financial Industry's Home-Grown Version of the Keystone Cops," by Marty Aussenberg:

"My guess is there are dozens, perhaps, hundreds more Madoffs and Stanfords that are going to be revealed. ... Finally, the country will stop focusing their attention on crap like Octo-mom."

About "Cohen and Other Officials Implore Bredesen To Accept Stimulus Funds: 'Do the Right Thing,'" by Jackson Baker:

"After all the bitching Bredesen has done this year about how much hard work he's putting into the budget, he'd look like a first-class idiot for turning down the money. Of course, that never stopped him before." — autoegocrat

About "The Rant" and Chris Davis' take on American Family Radio:

"Chris, the main problem you face is one of economics. Conservative talk radio thrives because the target audience — business owners — is one that a great number of businesses seek to reach." — Media Guy

About "The Party Is Over for Stanford Financial," by John Branston:

"When the news first broke, my immediate thought was 'Shlenker.' I am always astounded by how the Memphis power brokers always fall for slick talkers." — JM

Comment of the Week:

About "Local Congressional Reaction to Obama Address":

"If I hear [Marsha Blackburn] call herself a 'maverick' on the Mike Fleming show just one more time, I will honestly PUKE in a sack and have it delivered to her office."

— John Terrell
