About "Memphis Police Department Unveils Real Time Crime Center," featuring cameras monitoring our city's "hot spots," by Bianca Phillips:

"Safety or freedom, it's your choice. Big Brother is watching." — popsauce

About "Pending Bill Would Make Cockfighting a Felony," by Bianca Phillips:

"This ought to be a no-brainer. If your problem with this bill is that it's not presently a felony to assault a cop, then advocate for a Zsa Zsa Gabor law. Roosters are for hens." — autoegocrat

About the Memphis Flyer's online poll: "Why Is Willie Herenton Staying Put?" (after flip-flopping about his desire to be the new city schools superintendent):

"What's wrong with you people? Don't you know the Lord works in mysterious ways? And Willie is Lord. Amen." — rantboy

About "Chick-fil-A to Demolish Cumberland Presbyterian Building on Union," by Michael Finger:

"What's the big deal? We can always travel to visit cities with a varied and rich architectural heritage. We don't need good architecture here in this rathole." — packrat

Comment of the Week: Also about Chick-fil-A's plans for the Cumberland Presbyterian building:

"That door in the picture looks big enough that you could modify it for a drive-through. New motto for Chick-fil-A: 'Jesus Christ, that's some heavenly chicken!'" — wino
