What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com


About "Which Side Are You On?" and the controversy over Ernest Withers' role as a government informant:

"While I personally think that spying on your friends is totally sleazy, Withers was probably well-intentioned ... I am sure that many other legacies will be damaged along the way if people continue to look for answers about our past." — sally

About "New Statistics Show Drop in Violent Crime":

"This is great news. We can now cut the MPD budget by 23 percent. That would be $54 million. Awesome. We can redirect that money into job programs and community building. When does the city council vote on this?" — Doubting Thomas

About "Westboro Baptist Church: Maggots":

"I consider myself quite the liberal, but I have no qualms about good, old-fashioned ass kickings. These people deserve it if anyone ever did."

— Shane of Memphis

About the Senate vote to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy:

What's in it for Corker and Alexander to oppose this? ... Do they really think this is going to play as a wedge issue ("vote for me 'cause I hate gays")?

— M_Awesomeberg

Comments of the Week:

About "Letters to the Editor," which discussed pagan symbolism during Christmas, among other things:

"You fellas realize you're celebrating a virgin birth, right? I just wish it didn't fall so close to Jack and the Beanstalk Day." — 38103

"One of those miraculous virgin births brought about the end of my first marriage." — mad_merc
