What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Burger King Calls Global Warming 'Baloney,'" by Chris Davis:

"Global warming is merely a conspiracy of the global elite. To what purpose remains to be seen. They want to force us to do something. I'm not sure what it is. But I suspect they plan to use global warming to induct our children into the gay lifestyle and convert them to Islam." — jeff

"I have not eaten at a Burger King in almost 10 years but I WILL CERTAINLY BUY ONE WHOPPER A DAY FOR THE NEXT MONTH just to show my support. Why is it that liberals can make some asinine statement and get praised for their stand but every time a conservative makes a statement he has to get crucified?" — ConFlyRdr

About "High Times in Mississippi," the federally funded marijuana project, by Bianca Phillips:

"As far as I can tell the whole point of this story was ... was ... what were we talking about? ... You guys wanna go get some barbecue or something?" — Phlo

About "El Mayor Supremo: Willie Herenton," by Bruce VanWyngarden:

"Don't give him any ideas, Bruce. The last thing we need is a nuclear-armed Willie Herenton giving eight-hour speeches on television." — autoegocrat

About "The Rant" and the guns-in-bars controversy, by Randy Haspel:

"Now, instead of your hostess asking 'smoking or non-smoking?' she'll have to ask, 'armed or unarmed?'" — sputnik57
