What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Up For the Count" and the 2010 census, by Mary Cashiola:

"I am not filling out the damn census. If they send it to me, then they already know I exist and where I live." — 38103

About "Myron Lowery: I Weigh Too Much," by John Branston:

"Lowery's weight could lead him to be a great example. Why not a mayoral challenge to get Memphis fit? Memphians need to engage in preventative healthcare (myself included), and if someone as busy as Lowery can fit in time to exercise and can make better food choices at all those banquets, then most of us have no excuse." — BlissLaw

About "Out of Chaos, Cohen Manages a Bona Fide Town Meeting on Health Care," by Jackson Baker:

"Let's just hope that as more people realize what is at stake that Congress will back off this takeover of health care. We don't need the problems of Europe and Canada." — rharris

"Do you actually know people in Canada and Europe? I do. While none of my friends would say their respective health-care systems are perfect, not a single one would trade their situation for America's current health-care system. Not a single one." — wvfii

Comment of the Week:

About "Myron Lowery: I Weigh Too Much" by John Branston, which mentioned former President William Howard Taft:

"Taft never actually provided his Certificate of Body Mass Index, only his Certification of Large Butt." — autoegocrat
