What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Penny Gives a Million to the University of Memphis," by Frank Murtaugh:

"Way to go, Penny. You're a good guy, dude! Go Tigers!" — rantboy

About "Beijing Bores Me, I'm Ready for Football," by John Branston:

"I hope you are being sarcastic. Why would I want to watch a game in which the players themselves look unhappy to be playing? The greatest thing about the Olympics is the athletes are so freaking excited to be there. They are giddy! They act like kids at Disneyland." — cyngriffin

About "City Gets State Grant to Beautify Graceland Area":

"Finally, it's about time somebody did something with that forsaken piece of off-ramp. So many tourists think they've made a wrong turn when they get off the interstate at Brooks headed for Graceland. The beautification project can't start soon enough, and there had better be people watching over it to make sure it stays 'beautified.'" — skipaway2000

And one more comment about Bruce VanWyngarden's "Letter from the Editor," discussing "low-information voters," whom he referred to as "dumbasses":

"As a dumbass, I gotta tell you, I feel totally susceptible to the empty slogans from both sides. Every day is a flip-flop of emotions from the hope of change to the reassurance of experience." — westendgirl

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant," where Tim Sampson complained about the members of Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church who picketed Isaac Hayes' funeral:

"If God truly has a list of things to hate, which I doubt, I imagine the list would be topped and limited to those people or groups that project hatred. Hmmmm. God loves stupid people too." — nashid
