What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Letter from the Editor" and Bruce VanWyngarden's take on Congressman Joe "You Lie" Wilson:

"This entire episode is blown way out of proportion. Hell, the congress of yesteryear was rife with fist fights, cane beat downs, and all manner of verbal vitriol. Not withstanding is the mere fact that one politician called another politician a liar." — mad_merc

About "They Got Memphis Moving" and mentors Hosea Hill and William Foster, by John Branston:

"What an interesting story about two men who have obviously been instrumental in teaching who knows how many values like cooperation, determination, empathy, etc. ... I think that is what coaches, teachers, and mentors do for their athletes, students, and mentees." — EricB

About "Where's Osama":

"His goal, as he stated, was to destroy America ... but guess what? We are still here, we still have a beautiful country, we still have Monday Night Football, we still have a democracy, and by God, now we've even got Megan Fox!!" — MrKite

Comment of the Week:

About "Bianca Knows Best ... and Helps With a Closeted Boyfriend,"

by Bianca Phillips:

"It's more than just restraining your grabasstic tendencies. It's all the little things you do, unconsciously, that in the presence of others would give away the nature of your relationship. For a week you would have to become extremely self-aware and self-regulating and if you slip up, even just a little bit, you bring the whole charade crashing down, much like an I Love Lucy episode, but with tragic consequences."

— Jeff
