What They Said 

About "Football Coach Larry Porter Fired":

"Good call. We were just lacking in every aspect of the game. Thanks for the effort, Larry. I still have many great memories of you as a player for the Tigers."
— Midtown Mark

About "Loeb Wants Decision on Overton Square in 2011":

"Loeb needs to contribute funds for the parking part of the garage, and once it is built, let them 'own' it and operate it. They won't be able to charge an arm and a leg for parking because, as you mention, there are alternatives. I would rather pay $2 to $3 to park in a clean, secure lot than a trashy, free one. That's cheaper than a beer at Boscos."

About "Mulroy Joins Occupy Memphis Encampment on Monday":

"I thought he had a job. And an elected office. And some sort of responsibilities to fulfill. But in the words of the great Jacqueline Smith — protesting sure beats working!"

About "A Bike Plan Too Far" and the city's new bike lanes — and plans for more:

"I've been to so many other cities (larger and smaller than Memphis) and watched at rush hour as bikes, cars, and buses share the road in harmony. I am thinking that didn't occur in a vacuum. Someone, perhaps a committee, conducted studies, made proposals, and recommended a plan. I am so grateful that Memphis is getting on board with this."

Comment of the Week:
About "The Rant" and the increasingly violent battles against the Occupy movement:
"Tin soldiers and Gingrich coming ..."
— Phlo
