What They Said 

About "Five Thoughts on the Debate":
"Ultimately, what people remember about a debate is the charisma, confidence, and like-ability of the candidates, not necessarily the policies they espouse or anything they actually say. ... When we talk about JFK-Nixon in their first televised debate, we talk about Nixon looking tired and sickly while JFK was smooth and like-able." — GroveReb84

About "George Flinn, the Hip-Hop Candidate" and Al Kapone's endorsement video:
"Bustamove? More like Bustahip." — jeff

About "Best of Memphis: The People Have Spoken":
"Winning has a lot to do with marketing. Not seeing Frank's Deli in the Best Sandwich section is a shock while Lenny's is on there. But then again, do I want people clogging up the line at Frank's?"
Valibus

About "Germantown Democrats: Not an Oxymoron?":
"Pity the lonely liberal Phlo. A Dallas transplant living in far East Memphis, isolated and chastised. Wandering late at night in the foreboding catacombs that were once the local Border's store. Sobbing in the dark as the sad whistle from a train crosses the border into Memphis from Germantown. But now, I read this in the Flyer! May I break bread with you, Germantown Democratic Club? Shall we speak in affectionate tones about the New Frontier and scoff loudly at the notion of trickle-down economics? I'll bring the Guinness." — Phlo
