What They Said 

About "Wharton, Other Incumbents Win Easy Reelection":

"Not just the Democratic Party, but politics in general is dead in Shelby County. It's as if the people of this city have simply thrown in the towel."
— mad_merc

About "Occupy Memphis Cadres Meet Again, Plan New Action":

"The cool thing about this movement is that it is not just left-leaning. All party members across the spectrum are participating."
— A

About "From the Editor" and the law against Sunday beer sales:

"In my old drinking days ... I found that most people who would be prone to buy beer at 10 a.m. on Sunday would still be in bed at noon."
— CL Mullins

Comment of the Week:

About "Who's Behind 'Forward Rebels'?" and the mascot change at Ole Miss:

"The perfect mascot is ... the Ole Miss Old Miss, Miss Emily Grierson ... [who] killed [her lover] and slept with his body for twenty years. ... The school symbol could be a dusky red rose twined with a single gray hair. The possibilities are endless, from the bags of lime lining the sidelines to cover the stench of the decaying bodies of our defeated opponents to the cheerleaders in black dresses kicking up their petticoats in the endzone. Hoddy Toddy!"
— Jeff
