What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Turnaround Time," in which Mary Cashiola suggests that more retail isn't the solution to our city's problems:

"I wish the city would quit chasing the big, out-of-town retailers and put the same effort into nurturing locally owned enterprises. I, and a lot of the people I know, will patronize a locally owned business over its big-box counterpart every time. Even if it means paying a couple of bucks more." — B

About "Pyramid + Bass Pro = Times Square," by Mary Cashiola:

"If anyone seriously believes that Bass Pro is going to turn the Pinch into a miniature version of Times Square, I've got a Pyramid I'd like to sell you. Oh, wait a minute. Never mind." — autoegocrat

"If they installed solar panels backwards in the Pyramid, it could be the largest oven in the world and we could bake the largest pie in the world. And eat it. And our 25 percent below poverty level population in Memphis wouldn't starve nooooo more." — julie_noir

About "Bianca Knows Best, and Helps a Friend in an Open Relationship," by Bianca Phillips:

"Too bad Bianca wasn't doling out advice back in the '90s when David Letterman so desperately needed it." — phlo

About "Finally, a Mayoral Forum With Characters," by Jackson Baker:

"Everybody loves clowns." — jeff

Comment of the Week:

About "Obama Wins Peace Prize, Booooo!!!!!!" by Bruce VanWyngarden:

"It made me think of the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz getting his diploma." — MrKite
