What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "The Great Debate," by Bruce VanWyngarden:

"So we must elect a mayor based upon mannerisms and appearance rather than ideology and content? That is like keeping one's car washed and waxed, yet never open the hood." — CHG

About "The Debate: 10 Preliminary Statements in Advance of a Think Piece," by Jackson Baker:

"If we are stuck with A C or Myron or Carol or Carpenter, the city will continue to go down Mongo's turd bowl." — Clyde

About "Ronnie Grisanti's To Close This Weekend":

"Where are all the Cougars going to hunt now?" — slagmt

About "Whalum Offers Response Via Facebook," by Bianca Phillips:

"'woohoo!!! sup d?' The proper response to a media inquiry for a mayoral candidate? O, lawd, this gwine be a phun elexshun!" — sherman

About "Underdog Whalum Lashes Out ..." by Jackson Baker:

"Myron really wants to start throwing stones about other candidates' accomplishments? Really? Kind of like lighting firecrackers in the house: super-exciting for a second, but pretty silly and self-destructive." — 38115
