What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Dear God ... No. Update: Official Statement from Herenton," by Jackson Baker:

"You gotta hand it to Willie ... he couldn't get this much attention if he walked into a bar on Beale Street, ripped off his shirt, and started beating up a half-naked old man." — Am I Right?

About "The Antenna Club Redux," by Chris Davis:

"Thanks, Chris, for the great article, bringing back so many memories of buzzing eardrums, chaotic mosh pits, and massive, unadulterated confusion. My favorite memory from the Antenna has got to be Joe Lapsley of NTJ hanging from the beams above the stage, upside down, swinging and singing like a possessed monkey, while Al Kapone (who opened the show) came back out to rock with them." — bobell

About "Fly on the Wall" and the proposed health-care reform, by Chris Davis:

"My parents have done a living will, but they had to pay for it themselves. Hardly sounds like a death panel to me, but what do I know? I've never been governor of Alaska." — jeff

"This lunacy about killing off granny only serves to detract from the key points of reform. The fringe take rumors like this and get tunnel vision, totally ignoring the important factors." — madmerc

Comment of the Week:

About "Ex-Legislator Kathryn Bowers Is Back After Completing Prison Term," by Jackson Baker:

"Will she play for the Eagles?" — tomguleff
