What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Summer League Notebook: Game Three," by Chris Herrington:

"As soon as Thabeet starts taking punishment from the real NBA players it is going to be painful. And he will be sitting next to Yao at the orthopedist." — 38103

About "Farbs and Hardcores," by John Branston:

"Jerry Rice is a great counterexample; he was always in the latest and greatest workout gear despite the fact that he was the hardest working man in football. Some folks are just dandies who need to look good no matter where they are."

Publius16

About "Still a Big Fat Idiot," by Joe Conason:

"Fox news is highly successful in its basic mission: to get old white guys really pissed off. I can always tell when my dad has been watching it; he's really worked up about something, say, "Leon Panetta's daughter is a Communist!!!!" Of course, the governor of Texas threatening to secede from the Union is totally okay." — packrat

About "The Rant" and Tim Sampson's uh, joy, at turning 50:

"Tim, remember, 50 is the new 30, but 60, well that's the new ... uh ... I forgot." — joespake

About Chris Herrington's film review of Bruno:

"When my wife and I have guests visiting from out-of-town, we always do the same old three things: the Rendezvous, The Peabody ducks and anal bleaching from a guy in Midtown named 'Smitty'." — Phlo
