What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Memphis Tigers to Name Larry Porter Football Coach," by Frank Murtaugh:

"Great hire and I hope it works out. Instead of hiring some retread head coach, we've got a young, up-and-coming assistant. I say we put the program entirely in his hands and see what he can do." — TennesseeDrew

About "State Rep. Larry Turner, Who Served for a Quarter Century, Dies," by Jackson Baker:

"Rep. Turner was wise and compassionate, the likes of whom have been elected to the General Assembly with less and less frequency in recent years. He will be missed." — smckay

About "The Duffel-Bag Class" and city residency requirements, by Chris Davis:

"It appears to me that our society has become so detached from itself that we are more concerned for money than the general welfare of its people." — mrnasty

About "The Gadfly: Phone THIS Home, Cellulistas" and Marty Aussenberg's rant against cell phones:

"Sometimes I feel like Dr. Miles Bennell, surrounded by pod people encouraging me to just give in and accept it. To them, I say, yes, laugh now, but who will be laughing when I am the last man on earth whose head hasn't exploded from the microwave radiation being beamed through his brain? Huh? Huh?" — jeff

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and Tim Sampson's take on Sarah Palin:

"'Palin' and 'facts' are two words that should never be used in the same sentence ... and is it media bias to simply point out what a load of crap her memoir is? Honestly, I've heard ghost stories told around a campfire that were more truthful than her book." — the floyd
