What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About Bruce VanWyngarden's Letter from the Editor, where he admits to being cynical about Barack Obama's Nobel Prize:

"It's like thinking a father of three would dream up an elaborate hoax by releasing a giant saucer in the air and convincing the media his child was in it. Don't be silly!" — 38103

About "On the Scene in the Grove":

"I've been to just about every SEC venue, UT in Austin, and several NFL venues. The Grove is #1 for atmosphere. If the stadium was ever enlarged to seat 100,000, you would never be able to get out of town."

Howler Monkey

About "O Lard!" by Susan Ellis:

"I always thought Taco Bell bean burritos were somewhat healthy, since they did not contain lard. But, according to what I read here, lard is the healthiest fat of all. My world has just been turned upside down!" — gann

About bike lanes in Memphis:

"Frankly, biking in Memphis right now is a hair-ball experience. I biked to work from 1997 to 2006 back in California, and then from 2006 to 2008 here in Memphis. I quit this year, finding myself frequently stressed out from the bike commute home." — airshafer

About "The Rant" by Susan Wilson:

"There is indeed a male-equivalent to 'cougar.' We're called 'manthers.' Purrr ..." — fxn2mix

Comment of the Week:

About "Detroit Rock City," by Mary Cashiola:

"I have long said my new slogan for Memphis is: 'Memphis, where Detroit meets New Orleans.' Not a compliment for my hometown." — MJ Costa
