What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Dogs Versus Abortion Versus War," by Bruce VanWyngarden:

"A society that can let a puppy starve can kill babies. A society that can pit two dogs, one against another in a blood sport, can shoot one another. A society that can keep an animal in a cage to wallow in its own feces can neglect a dependent senior. A society that can euthanize hundreds of animals without a forethought can walk into a crowded area and gun down everyone in sight."

About "Young and Invincible?" by Sarah Bolton and Hannah Sayle:

"Thank you for doing a story that puts real faces on this issue. My wife and I have been uninsured for a little more than a year now. With the downturn in the economy, we're not making as much as we were two years ago and we just can't afford the rates we've been quoted. Mortgages, food, utilities, and auto have us strapped." — sbanbury

About "Anderton's Away," by Mary Cashiola:

"I can't understand why some people in this town sing the praises of blight, at least when it's in the form of an old and abandoned building. What was the last vibrant city you lived in or visited that was littered with empty decaying buildings, particularly throughout its downtown? Tear me down, I say." — Jack

Comment of the Week:

About "It's a Shelter Dog's Life" by Bianca Phillips:

"Sickening — and just further evidence that Memphis is not a part of the U.S.A. but a third world country unto itself."

— Chris in Midtown
