What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Island Dreams" and plans for Mud Island, by Mary Cashiola:

"People keep shooting down the Ferris wheel. Have none of you been to London? The Eye is awesome and a great way to see the city and its surroundings. I would need to see the type of Ferris wheel they are thinking about before I pass judgment. A real WOW attraction would allow you to shoot water balloons across the Wolf River at City Hall. Maybe the world's biggest sling shot?" — urbanut

About "Memphis Drubbed Late by UCF, 32-14," by Bruce VanWyngarden:

"I do hope the university will consider a change at the helm after this season. Maybe they could replace Tommy with, I don't know, maybe a John Madden football game. Get some 14-year-old kid up in the press box with a PlayStation to call the plays." — jeff

About "Memphis Goes National," by John Branston:

Cohen may be a goofball, but people who are seriously considering putting a divisive megalomaniac like Herenton in Congress are masochists plain and simple." — wvfii

About "Billboard Destruction Galvanizes Community," by Bianca Phillips:

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell is a requirement that you lie. That is wrong, and it certainly violates any code of honor. ... It's all just wrong, and I am deeply disappointed in Barack for not doing more to stop it now." — dayle

Comment of the Week:

About "On the Scene at the Pink Palace Crafts Fair," by Susan Ellis:

"The remnants of the chicken on a stick are a visual metaphor for a great weekend of sex, deep-fried and satisfied. As for Roadkill Grill, possum and skunk should be mentioned in the political section." — fuzdog
