What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "From My Seat: The Quintessential Quintet" by Frank Murtaugh:

"The Tiger victory was sweeter than all my Easter candy. Man, they ran it down too close to the wire for my tastes, but it was sweet, anyway. Michigan State is a tough team, so Dorsey and the rest had better bring their A game." — rantboy

About "Willie Herenton to Resign" by Jackson Baker:

"This is a great day for Memphis — like having simultaneous brain and heart transplants in a previously dying patient." — mmiddle About "The Wharton Hypothesis," where Jackson Baker discusses the possibility of the Shelby County mayor replacing Herenton:

"The mayor does Memphis and its library a great favor. He's leaving. ... I can testify to a library administration with no appreciation for its greatest resources, the library staff and Memphis community. He didn't either. If a newly elected mayor can have that appreciation, the new leader will go far in serving all citizens. Wharton." — Vincent

About "Anti-War Protestors Arrested in Corker's Office" by Bianca Phillips:

"To all who participated in this event — you have my gratitude, my admiration, and my encouragement. Keep the pressure on Corker. He doesn't want a town hall meeting because of his shameful record of support for this war and this administration." — Sneaky Pete

About "Justin Timberlake to Give $200,000 to Memphis Music Organizations":

"I think that's a good thing to do and give back to your hometown. Go JUSTIN!!" — mexshorty22

Comment of the Week: About "Herenton: Not Moving On" by John Branston:

"NOT SO FAST is exactly right! Willie is loading the dice and marking the cards as we type." — toast
