What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Letter from the Editor" and Bruce VanWyngarden protecting his home with a shotgun:

"We have in Memphis a rate over 80 percent of Elmo IQs carrying and personalities that match 'Barter Town' types who should not be carrying even a spork. So letting the law-abiding have old Western-style laws and wield a pistol into a bar, store, etc. is fine by me, just give me the right to have the biggest, baddest thing I can get." — The_Unicorn_of_Memphis

About "Griz Draft Board: The Lottery (Take One)," by Chris Herrington:

"Lots of people are setting themself up for disappointment by putting all of their eggs in the basket of winning the draft. This insight is helpful in looking at what we can do which is not dependent entirely on luck." — new_skool91

About "Press Conference with New Tiger Coach Josh Pastner," by Frank Murtaugh:

"This is probably the best starting place any career coach could hope for, which bodes well for his chances at building his own legacy with a school that took a chance on him. Good choice, Mr. Johnson. Go Tigers." — fxn2mix
