What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Upsetting the Food Cart" and why Memphis doesn't have a vibrant street-food scene:

"I find it amazing that all of the various types of food sold from street vendors around the world are considered dangerous here. It must be tied to the auto emissions or some such." — mad_merc

"Finding out you can only sell hotdogs ... because they are healthier than any other food ... is ... not the least bit surprising, considering this city. There's some genius at work here, far beyond my poor ability to recognize." — Jeff

About Bruce VanWyngarden's "Letter from the Editor" asking people to calm down about national health-care reform:

"I know Canadians and they absolutely love their health care. There are gripes, sure, but they basically think we are savages for waiting this long to do something." — wvfii

"As a conservative I advocate the free market. As a human being and compassionate former health-care giver, I can't help but believe the amount we spend right now can go a lot further. I am not convinced that Obama's plan is going to do that. ... I don't buy the philosophy that this bill is just the start and we will refine it as we go."

Tommy Volinchak

"There were only 2 choices. 1) Do nothing 2) Do something. And we got what we got. Mostly because people are worried about government control, when they should be more worried about corporate control." — 38103

Comment of the Week:

Also about the "Letter from the Editor" and the national health-care debate:

"Let the right-wing extremists incite violence all they want. Ultimately they're digging a sinkhole deeper than anything you'll find on I-240." — Phlo
