From "Family Dollar Airlines Expands Catapult Services To Include Memphis International Airport," a parody piece about a new low-cost airline that will use catapults instead of planes: "Technically, this is feasible. With modern computers, you could easily calculate the correct trajectory and force needed to reach your destination. All you'd need is a really big net at the other end. Of course, the G-forces of takeoff might be hazardous or even deadly, but hey, we don't call it Adventure Travel for nothing." — Jeff

From "Midtown Nursery To Fight Food Truck Plan," about an existing business being asked to move to make way for a food truck court:

"As a longtime food trucker, I will tell you this IS NOT COOL. We will NOT be participating in this ill-planned endeavor."


From "Memphis Actors Warned About Possible Talent Scam," a story about an event promising to connect actors with talent scouts for a $650 fee:

'"Don't pay to audition, don't audition in a private residence, and don't take off your clothes at an audition,' used to appear in every issue of Backstage magazine with the audition notices." — RonGephart


Tweet about the Flyer's new Grizzlies writer, Kevin Lipe:

"I have to admit, was worried @MemphisFlyer wouldn't find suitable replacement for @HerringtonNBA but @FlyerGrizBlog has been phenomenal too." — Cullen @Cullen4


From a post linking to the "The Hamp," last week's cover story on good things happening in Binghampton:

"Great article! I love the area and the spirit of the people who are moving IN instead of abandoning the city. #choose901" — Monique Fisher
