What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About college radio, one of the "Bright Ideas" for Memphis, compiled by Mary Cashiola:

"I love WEVL, but it is NOT a college-radio format. You could only think so if you've never heard an authentic college-radio station. Which is a forgivable mistake to make, because you live in Memphis, which doesn't have one." — YaYa's Papa

About one of the "Bright Ideas" for Memphis to stop building crap:

"Never heard of this coalition and I've never heard of Andrew but I totally agree with him. Just ride down Germantown Parkway and take notice of what's going up. It will eventually look like Winchester from Parkway Village area to Germantown road."

— ProudPapist

About "McCain to Pick Fred Smith for Veep? Says Who?" by Jackson Baker:

"I guess we have different opinions on what a conservative is. I say one that obeys and votes the Constitution. Less Government and More Freedom. You can problably count the true conservatives in Congress on one hand." — MickeyWhite

About "Here's an Idea: Grow Food on Memphis' Vacant Lots":

"These types of programs seem to have worked in large urban areas. Memphis has literally thousands of vacant and abandoned lots. As I recall, a program like this was tried here and was a dismal failure. I would love to see it tried again." — Midtown Joe

Comment of the Week: About "Mad As Hell: It Was the War, Stupid," by Cheri DelBrocco:

"McCain = Bush Term III = war, war, war, debt, war, debt, higher taxes to pay for debt, surging gas prices cause they freakin hate us, war, war, dollar worth zero, no jobs, no healthcare, crime, foreclosures, rotting infrastructure, the end of America." — rantboy
