What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Playing the Fool," a profile of vocal impressionist Paul Shanklin, by Jackson Baker:

"It would be hypocritical of me to enjoy one of my favorite protest songs (Legendary K.O.'s 'George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People') while denying Republicans the right to take comfort in theirs (Legendary K.O.'s 'George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People')." — fancycwabs

About Bruce VanWyngarden's Letter from the Editor on pundits:

"Time to form a new grassroots party. Some of the main points: 1) PBR should always be available and affordable. 2) Bums should do 8 hours of community service for every panhandling arrest (out of the public). 3) Work hours move to 10-4. 4) .................... 5) Jumper Cable Guy can do the fund-raising." — 38103

About "From My Seat: Pointers for the New Prez on a National Priority, Sports" by Frank Murtaugh:

"Good suggestions, Frank. How about someone figuring out a way to attend sporting events without having to pony up a minimum of $200 a pop? Oh, and how about regulations on scalpers?" — rantboy

About "Biggie Smalls Biopic Is Fun for Fans," by Chris Herrington:

"Well great, another movie celebrating a damn THUG ... typical."

V-8 Power

Comment of the Week:

About Bruce VanWyngarden's Letter from the Editor (where he includes Ann Coulter in a list of conservative pundits):

"I have to admit, Ann Coulter is the best-looking man on television." — Jeff
