What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Wisdom and the Wiseman Brothers: A Modest Proposal," by Jackson Baker:

"Wiseman — the New Ford."

About "Graduate Gold" and the connection between college graduates and a city's prosperity:

"Perhaps I'm just being an old hippy, but my four nephews ask the same questions as me. Two have graduated, two have not, but they all ended up with the same question: Isn't 'education' supposed to be about something more than 'economic development agenda'? I give it its own line ... maybe you want to place flowers and sacrifice animals at its altar." — kirantana

About "Tennessee Secretary of State Says Up-to-Date Voting Machines Available for TVCA But Costs Still Prohibitive," by Jackson Baker:

"You get a receipt when you buy a burger and fries; isn't your vote more valuable than that? Or are the people of Tennessee really content to drop their vote into a black hole and assume that there's absolute certainty that it will be counted?" — bleever

Comment of the Week:

About "Vegan Living Food Holiday Sunday Brunch at Safari," by Susan Ellis:

"I like to get to know my main course a little bit first; relaxes 'em a bit before the big slaughter. Over the weekend I took Warren, a 1,100-pound Angus steer, out for a little shopping, dinner, and a movie. The poor guy cried like a little girl during The Blind Side. Very sensitive." — Phlo
