What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "The Memphis Brand" and Mayor Wharton's hiring of a "brand manager":

"Many years ago Memphis hosted Richard Florida for a think-tank symposium called the Memphis Manifesto. Its mission was to help mid-sized cities retain and attract the American creative class. I hope Mary [Cashiola] will call for a regrouping of the Memphis Manifesto group. Let's see how we can work with business leaders to help make Memphis a progressive city. Sorry, but the CVB and the Chamber don't have the mindset to do the work necessary to attract the creative class. I hope Mary does." — tech

About "Q&A with Michael Roberts," the pilot who refused a full-body scan at Memphis International:

"TSA has become more of a threat to our democracy than any terrorist threat. I will not submit to their unreasonable searches. ... I will no longer fly. If the airlines fail because of public reaction to unreasonable government intrusion, then so be it." — iaintnohick

"The pilot, theoretically, needn't be scanned or patted down because he has control of the plane and could crash it if he wanted. One wonders about that rationale, though, considering that a pilot with a gun could shoot the co-pilot and avoid any interference with whatever plans he might have hatched." — infrequent flyer

About "Non-Discrimination Ordinance Fails":

"Memphis is so backwards in every way. Nashville easily passed a similar law for GLBT metro employees. Another example of how horrible this decaying city really is for those of us who have no choice but to live here." — Kelly

Comment of the Week:

About "City Bound":

"'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but what happens in Memphis makes history.' You have permission to use that." — 38103
