What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Dirty Harry: A Possible Explanation for Clint Eastwood's Speech," during which the actor addressed an empty chair at the RNC:

"I thought he was mimicking the movie Harvey with Jimmy Stewart — the faltering language and monologue was identical to how Stewart spoke to the invisible rabbit. Problem is — NO ONE remembers Harvey! It is from 1950." — Robin Smith

About "The Man with the Plan: Did Romney Deliver?":

"I couldn't tell if it delivered or not because I was watching college football. I also will be doing the same during next week's other infomercial. No offense to infomercials, at least you get a cheap product for your money, which is more than I can say about either party." — still living in Berclair

About "UT-Martin 20, Memphis 17":

"That this game was even close says all that needs to be said. I honestly believe there are no fewer than two or three dozen high school football teams in the U.S. that could either beat the Tigers or keep the ending score to no more than a touchdown apart. Why the university allows this embarrassment to continue is beyond me." — Charlie

Comment of the Week:

About "Rick Santorum Never Cared about Winning the Republican Primary as Long as Barack Obama Was Defeated":

"This new Republican fascination with the French Revolution is, I think, especially telling, given current events. I'm still depressed that Rick didn't win the primary. I don't know what I'm going to do with those 10,000 'Santorum! Don't Get None On Ya!' T-shirts I ordered from China." — jeff
