What They Said 

About "Sour Apples" and the working conditions of Apple's overseas employees:

"St. Steve himself stated that Apple couldn't manufacture in the U.S. because being able to rouse an entire workers' dorm at midnight and put them on back-to-back 12-hour shifts isn't allowed here ... and that's what his Holiness required for the first iPhone." — cr33

Even more about "20<30" and young people who are shaping our city's future:

"If you want to know how [Justin Jaggers] got his job at Radio Memphis, I brought him in. I never mentioned his father's name, and his father's name has nothing to do with anything. Justin is one of the most determined and hardest workers I've ever met. ... He's dedicated, loyal, hard-working, and extremely talented. And none of that came from his DNA." — David Thorn

About "Ramsey, Attorney General Cooper Say No to Annexation Bills, and Norris Stands Down":

"Racism has raised its ugly head again. ... It is obvious some whites want to be separate from blacks and that's just the fact about it. The Old South is very much alive ... sad, sad, sad." — JustRight

About "Would Memphis Suburbs Have to Do Without County Funding for New School Districts?":

"This article shows how backward this area is. We have a county mayor who acts like he is an education expert. Why should the citizens of this area take educational advice from a prison warden?" — stapletondia

Comment of the Week:

About "Snow Day Provisions," with our editor wondering why Memphians stockpile milk when snow is in the forecast:

"The answer is a simple one. On cold, bleak winter days, some of us Memphis guys need a middle-aged hottie to hunker down with. Oh, milk? My mistake. Thought you said MILF." — phlo
