What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "The Rant" and everything from bank bailouts to Marie Osmond's infomercials:

"Might want to check into who all has stakes in those companies you refer to. It would surprise you to learn that a governmental hand is in those cookie jars. They are donkey paws as well as elephant paws. At some point you need to get back to understanding that the government has no love for you ... neither Republicans nor Democrats." — smm.memphis@yahoo.com

About "Relegislating the Thabeet" pick and the Grizzlie's impending transfer to the Dakota Wizards:

"After tonight's game, I can think of a number of players on the current roster who should be sent down to the D league. They need to be reminded that they can never take their NBA careers for granted. Maybe then they will play with some semblance of desire to win a game." — grizzdoc

About "Big Dairy Smackdown" and the FDA's new rules about "access to pasture" for livestock:

"Tell the USDA to give the cows mandatory pasture time in all stages of growth! Feedlot farming is so, so cruel. The cows stand in their own feces up to their knees for 4 months, and then we eat them. It is truly disgusting because those feces end up in our food." — Jim-Farmr

About "Airborne" and the new public skating program at Greenlaw Community Center:

"If anyone wants to see me bust ass, I'll be out there trying it out with my rollerblades. Zoom-zoom. And trust me, old white lady busting ass is pretty funny." — julie noir

Comment of the Week:

About "Doing the Math" and the notion that taking advantage of a congressional majority is somehow a sneaky tactic:

"By the time Democrats find their testicles they will have 49 votes and a new president." — 38103
