What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "World-Class Crack-Up" and voters rejecting a sales tax increase to pay for a new school system:
"To be honest, the process of surrendering the school charter was comical. The entire process was hijacked by those whose quest for metro consolidation is fanatical." — tomguleff

About "At the Hostess Plant" and the end of Twinkies in America:
"Looks like Hostess will be made in Mexico. So now my trips south include purchases of good tequila, watermelon, and Twinkies." — homersimpson

About "H.O.P.E. Members File Complaint with MPD" after cited for obstructing a sidewalk:
"This sounds like a pissing contest and the cop used the citation to 'win,' but that's just my hypothesis. Personally, I'm not sure what's more embarrassing — actually writing a citation for obstructing the sidewalk or standing there long enough to let someone write it?" — mad_merc

About "Letter from the Editor" and the Petraeus, Broadwell, and Benghazi mess:
"Regardless of the result of it all, I sincerely hope the media will treat the result in the same manner they would if Bush were still president. I sincerely wish we could get to the point where news is just news again, and everything doesn't have to have a spin. I doubt we will ever get that though, because there is too much money involved in shaping the story." — GroveReb84

Comment of the Week:
About "World-Class Crack-Up":
"In all honesty you could put a tenth of a cent tax increase for every $100 spent on the ballot that would guarantee world peace forever, and it would be voted down. Most people just see the wording 'tax increase,' and the issue is decided at that point. You're giving our huddled masses way too much credit if you think there is actual analytical decision-making going on in tax increase voter referendums." — Midtown Mark
