What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Beale Street Landing Now at $33 Million," by John Branston:

"Ah, quit yer whining ... it's chump change. Beale Street Landing is a very important and necessary element needed to complete our riverfront trifecta:

1. The Pyramid — unoccupied, destined (don't hold yer breath) to become the world's largest bait shop.

2. Mud Island — nice museum, cute river replica, but an under-utilized amphitheater and let's don't get started on the restaurant. Overall, it's the Mid-South's most expensive fireworks staging area.

3. Beale Street Landing — a $33 million steamship dock, except steamships don't come by here anymore." — B

About "Longleaf Partners Annual Meeting in Memphis," in which John Branston reports that some of the partners see the stock market "coming back":

About "You Say 'Cheen-ey,' I say 'Chain-ey': Just What Did Ford Jr. Tell Chris Matthews About Torture?" by Jackson Baker:

"At least he didn't use the 'white devils' phrase that his daddy made famous." — upthecreek
