What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "In the Bluff" and learning that he was the 1,000th commenter on this blog:

"What do I win?"

— jeff

About "Non-Discrimination Support Rally Draws Over 500 People," where barbs were directed toward a certain church in Cordova:

"What more can you expect from Bellevue aka 'Six Flags Over Jesus'? After all, they only recently admitted slavery was wrong. Have you noticed they strategically placed their version of the Holy Land as far away from those who need Jesus the most?" — ttenhet

About "Dog the Bounty Hunter" and a proposal to offer a reward to anyone bringing in stray dogs:

"This is the exact same problem Memphis had in the early 1900s. The city was overrun with stray cats and dogs. It was a public health issue along with our crime, high number of bars, and prostitution. Then we got Senator McKellar to get funding for a city dog pound. It is still at Auction and Front today. ... We still have strays, drugs, crime, and prostitution in abundance. My, how things haven't changed in 100 years." — Doubting Thomas

"Yeah, but in 1910 they didn't have Bass Pro in the Pyramid. Take that, old-timey people!"

— autoegocrat

About "Once Again: Cohen Was Goin'" and the election that attracted national attention. Or so we thought:

"No offense to Memphis but having moved here from a larger area, nobody is 'watching' Memphis. Nobody cares." — CasualObserver

"Go to any big city outside of a 300-mile radius of here, and ask the average person on the street where Memphis is. Nobody knows!!" — hoodatbe

"Casual and Hoodatbe are exactly right, which is why there's a new show on TNT called New Orleans Beat." — jeff

Comment of the Week:

About "Extreme Measures" and the dire financial problems of other cities in the United States:

"This does not compute. I thought Memphis was the only place bad things happened." — cdel
