What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "The Month Sports Forgot," by Frank Murtaugh:

"You're right about February 14th — it's the day pitchers and catchers report to spring training. No wonder people give each other candy and flowers to celebrate!" — leftwingcracker

About "The Rant," where Randy Haspel "feels bad for those who feel no joy in Barack Obama's inauguration":

"Lovely. Nothing says liberal like out-hating the conservatives, hey Randy? Way to keep the old cycle of violence whirling." — Tseneau

About Bruce VanWyngarden's "Letter from the Editor," where he discusses "Amish" heaters:

"Yeah, I'm going to buy one of these heaters, too. And I want one of those blankets with the sleeves to go with it so that instead of Amish, I will look like a Druid sitting by my mantle. LOL!" — rantboy

About "Tumult for Tennesseeans: Saltsman, Davis, Kelsey Take Flips," by Jackson Baker:

"Sending a text message is dumb! Whatever happened to just bringing a bag full of cash and placing it in the representative's freezer? We need smarter politicos. The Tennessee Waltz proved that." — tomguleff

Comment of the Week:

About Bruce VanWyngarden's gripe in his "Letter from the Editor" that calling a section of downtown "Triangle Noir" is a marketing disaster:

"There are plenty of reasons that the 'Triangle Noir' idea is terrible ... without having to side-track the debate by mentioning that the term was used by Nazis. Honest." — fancycwabs
