What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Arkansas State 33, Memphis 28":

"I have decided that I'm going to support this lil' team with everything I have from now on. Why? Because they're good enough, they're smart enough, and doggone it, people like 'em!" — phlo

About "Conventional Thinking" and the Republican and Democratic national conventions:

"Unfortunately, someone does have to win. But at the end of the day, while we argue over birth certificates and tax returns, both parties will go back to Washington after November and continue to line their pockets just as they have always done. So really, both sides win." — still living in Berclair

About "Hacker Group Claims To Have Romney's Tax Returns" and will release them for $1 million:

"Left out the part that says, 'A hacker group — led by Dr. Evil.' Mwahaha! Mwahahahahaha! Mwahahahahahahahahahaha!"


About "Hardee's Racy Ad for the Memphis BBQ Thickburger":

"That commercial was shot in Eads — I recognize the pick-up in the background. And I'm pretty sure I've seen those girls in church before." — RemotePatroller

About "For the Democrats, a Good Convention, But ...":

"President Obama's one great weakness, in spite of his many laudable, honorable, and admirable characteristics, is that he really did (does?) believe that he can change the way things operate in Washington, and, if he just continues to act decent toward them, he seems to think Republicans will 'come around' and start acting in the best interest of those they are elected to govern rather than in the best interest of themselves and their special interests. It's too bad that President Obama does not have LBJ's killer political instincts." — JHC

Comment of the Week:

About "Wharton To Receive Burgess Award During Democratic National Convention," recognizing his achievements in local education:

"This must be the same group that picks the candidates for Hell's Kitchen." — GWCarver
