What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "New Layoffs Begin at The Commercial Appeal," by Bruce VanWyngarden:

"If informing people and influencing their thinking isn't like brain surgery, then your expectations of journalism [are] way lower than mine. Good journalists change societies ... what brain surgeons do that much?" — 38138

About "Beer at University of Memphis Football Games? It Could Happen," by John Branston:

"While I don't support a stadium full of drunks, it's ridiculous to think that more than half of the coke sales are not having a little something poured into them from a flask that was snuck into the stadium. Here are a few ideas: 1) Increase security at the gates to catch more liquor coming into the game. 2) For those that are of legal age, allow them to partake in a few beers during the game. 3) Offer to sell cokes with an inch or two of room for the liquor that will be poured in after the fan gets back to their seat." — MemphisFan

About "The Rant," in which Tim Sampson talks about getting soft and fighting for a better Memphis:

"We need a Pied Piper for naysayers. Straight in the river." — 38103

Comment of the Week:

About Letters to the Editor (issue 1048):

"About MUD ISLAND. First of all CHANGE THE NAME! I know it's 'cute' and it's 'local' and it's 'Memphis' but for the love of God change the name to something appealing. Who wants to travel, even from a local zip code, to a place with a name like MUD ISLAND? It's a great piece of land, don't deface it by calling it a friggin pile of mud." — JohnTerrell
