What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Hot Pics" and the Memphis Flyer's 2013 Hotties:
"Well, this is like a recurring nightmare for me. I scanned the new Flyer issue from front to back. I scrutinized the Flyer website from top to bottom. And I'll be a monkey's frickin' uncle. I was snubbed again!" — Smitty Patterson

About "No New Civil War, Please":
"I would propose a compromise: that Forrest Park and Confederate Park be left as traditionally named and that Jefferson Davis Park be renamed Ida B. Wells Park. This would allow all public monuments paid for by past citizens of Memphis to be continued to be respected and honored, while awarding official commemoration to Mrs. Wells, an activist during the Reconstruction, an era not often remembered in present civil rights lore." — Otterdaemmerung

About "Liberating Forrest Park":
"I've started the Tony Allen statue fund." — 38103

About "Rep. Steve Cohen Tells His Secret: The Lovely Young Lady Is His Daughter!":
"Ever see The Brady Bunch? I'm thinking Mike Brady knew he wasn't the father of those three very lovely girls ... but he was like, what, Father of the Year in 1969." — unblinkingeye

Comment of the Week:
About "Letter from the Editor" and allowing employees to keep guns in parked cars:
"I wouldn't worry about defending yourself on that short walk to the parking lot, Bruce. You could always whip out your sarcasm and stop the mugger with that." — OakTree
