What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Gadfly: The Cold Hard Truth about Sarah Palin," by Marty Aussenberg:

"Sarah Palin is just what I needed to bring back my second childhood, when I was worried that the USA and USSR were gonna nuke the crap out of each other." — fancycwabs

"In Soviet Russia, the moose shoot you." — B

"Willie Herenton has got more executive experience than all 4 of them combined ... but I sure as hell wouldn't want him to be my president ... or vice president ... or secretary of anything. I don't even want him to be my MAYOR" — the_floyd

About "Changes Coming to Beale":

"Beale is a jewel in Memphis' crown. Its magic, character, and charm lie within its history. Don't move one single brick or spit-shine a thing. Those weathered signs, storefronts, and time-worn interiors are a part of history, and that is what people want — not some big, shiny mall, arena, or stadium." — PD

Comments of the Week:

About last week's "What They Said":

"I've noticed over the past year how pretty Republican women are, and how ugly Democrat women are. I don't know why this is so, but it is a fact." — doctorchange

"Doc, it has something to do with increased deficit spending on beauty products and plastic surgery." — sbanbury
