What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Highways = 18 Percent Population Drop," where studies show that cutting a major highway or expressway through a city chases citizens away:

"Just wait until flying cars and hovercraft become a reality. Or teleporting! That would be awesome, we wouldn't have to leave Memphis to get a promotion."

"Jetpacks! I'm still waiting for my jetpack." — mike hollihan

About "Choice City" and Mayor Wharton's goal to make Memphis a place where people want to live:

"National companies don't want to be associated with cities that are consistently highlighted for their violent crimes, and they don't want to set up shop and move their people to an area in which their safety is questionable."

B-reazy

About "Letter from the Editor" and the Westboro Baptist Church members who protest at the funerals of soldiers:

"Mr. Phelps and his family (his immediate and extended family are the Westboro Baptist 'Church') are vermin who are lower than a snake's belly. I've met roaches and rats who are more compassionate and Christian than these twisted freaks."

Comment of the Week:

About "Jock Tax" and the income tax Tennessee levies on visiting athletes:

"Whew. I thought you were going to say they passed a tax on athletic supporters. My extensive collection would have ruined me financially." — jeff
