What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Glenn Beck: Crazy for 'Memphis,'" by Chris Davis:

"Only when the burned-out bulbs were replaced could one clearly read the full name of the musical in question ... 'MEMPHIS SUCKS.' The devil is in the details." — dduck

About "Balls," a recent basketball cover story by Chris Herrington and Frank Murtaugh:

"Really? 'Balls'??? Maybe I should buy a Ford F350 and hang the cover of your [newspaper] from my tow hook." — saispas

About "Memphis Kid Reporter Charms Today show Hosts":

"I am absolutely ecstatic over this young lady and this story. Thank you so much. We have a new mayor and a bright smile. Maybe the sun will actually come out tomorrow!" — Starfishscrapper

About "Tennessee's Option" and the never-ending health-care debate:

"[The post office is] such an example of incompetence that I can send a letter through the mail across the country for 44 cents and 99 percent of the time it gets there within three days. Can FedEx do that for that price? No. (I love FedEx, btw). Keep up your tinfoil rants ... how 'bout one on Flouridation — A Red Plot?'" — Packrat

Comment of the Week:

About "In Stunning Accomplishment, Herenton Reverses Flow of Time, Vindicating Einstein," by Jackson Baker:

"Maybe if we reverse the flow of the river, it will so confuse him he will move to West Memphis."

— Jeff

"If the river starts flowing backwards, we'll know he's on to something." — B
