About "Buttercup's March Down the Peabody Red Carpet" and the Peabody duck with a prosthetic foot:
"They made the handicap duck use the stairs. Have they not heard of the Americans With Disabilities Act? They should have had the forethought to have a handicap ramp. Feather brains." — CEBorst

About "Fact and Myth: Numbers Behind the Property Tax Numbers":
"Well, well, well, so taxes are higher in DeSoto County than Memphis? But if you listen to some of our city council members, people are leaving Memphis in droves because of higher taxes. Facts are a funny thing." — still living in Berclair

About "Clothing Boutique To Open in Overton Square":
"We really needed another clothing boutique in Midtown. Yay. Can they add a nail shop as well?" — Chris in Midtown

About "Get Smart" and MLGW's new "smart" utility meters:
"Once you get a smart meter, other people can decide if you are using too much electricity. They may agree to turn your electricity off from 2 to 4 o'clock on Mondays and Wednesdays. They know what's best for you. ... Think I'm off base? Just wait and see. You have been groomed to take it." — Believer

About "On the Zimmerman Case: An Addendum":
"If it played out the way we heard, then there is fault with both parties. Both parties were guilty of 'keepin it real,' and it led to a death, unfortunately. To pretend that one party was completely innocent is wrong. Unfortunately, though, the race play is out there, and there are a lot of people out there who benefit from using the race play who jumped all over this to justify another few decades of playing the victim. Take this exact same situation and switch who has the gun, and the outcome of the situation flips." — GroveReb84

Comment of the Week:
About "So Congressman Cohen Is Not a Proud Papa After All?"
"Mom's not looking good in this." — jeff
