What They Said 

About "Geography-Based Hiring Trend Spreads in Memphis," by Bruce VanWyngarden:

"I want to go on the record with my own hiring policy. From here on out I will only be hiring people who live left on Poplar, right at the next light, and two blocks in either direction from the next four-way stop. Although I am not hiring right now. Sorry." — clint

"Having lived my entire 53 years in this town, I remember what 'community' should mean. Those that have a problem being a Memphian should serve where they currently live. Many of you left when desegregation began, even more when Mayor Herenton was elected. You threw the baby out with the bathwater. Don't make the same mistake twice." — 54ANDSTILLHERE

About "Cautiously and Wryly, AC Starts His Run for City Mayor at Racquet Club," by Jackson Baker:

"Again, an extension of Willie Herenton. He smiles, Willie scowls. Birds of a feather flock together."

— marie

"What's he done so far to deserve being mayor of anything?"

— wintermute

Comment of the Week:

About "Life and Theater Merge in Ambitious, Oddball Film" by Chris Herrington:

"As much as I've been waiting to see Synecdoche, New York, it doesn't have a sad vampire on a motorcycle." — fancycwabs
