What They Said 

About “Editor’s Note” and the perceived “divorce” between Collierville/Germantown and most of Memphis, which prompted 125-plus comments, such as:
“The divorce attorneys are going to make a killing. Excellent piece, Bruce.”
— TacoLicker

“Bruce got it all wrong. This is not a marriage. This is a family squabble. One cannot divorce from his/her family. As with any democratic republic, in time, the majority will eventually rule out. The clock has been and is still ticking!”
— oldtimeplayer

“I would never say that Nastyville was a real sweetheart, although Memphis did have a much more amicable relationship with her 20 years ago. There were a few moments of togetherness, but both sides were always a bit reluctant to overt public displays of affection.”
— mad_merc

“‘You fear crime. I fear boredom,’ just might be the greatest thing the Flyer has ever published.”
— Count Dracula

“After scanning these comments, I am reminded that many of my fellow Memphians suffer under a puzzling misapprehension that the surrounding cities’ fortunes are somehow intricately tied to those of Memphis. Often, I hear this baseless claim asserted around town as if it as certain as gravity. Maybe you have a point. Look how horribly the city of Grosse Point has declined along with Detroit.”
— Ted Underhill

“Ike yelled ‘You’re nothing without me! NOTHING!’ So Tina moved on down the road.”
— Dagon

Comment of the Week:

About “Coaching Clarity: Two or Three Things I Know about the Hollins Situation”:
“I would be totally okay with Chris Herrington as our new coach.”
— CWIM
