What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Fools Rush In" and Arlington mayor Russell Wiseman's Facebook comments about Barack Obama:

"This story reminds me of my uneducated grandmother in Mississippi. ... The best story on her is that she hated Walt Disney! She was convinced that he purposefully broadcast The Wonderful World to keep young people from attending Sunday p.m. church services!"

"Having an opinion is one thing; being a conspiracy theorist is another; being über-conservative, although a bit disconcerting, is not damning; being all three at once with the main point of the conspiracy being to distract you from watching Charlie Brown???? I believe Einstein said it better than anyone: The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has limits." — mad merc

About "McGwire Doesn't Deserve Hall of Fame," by Frank Murtaugh:

"You and all the rest are going on speculation and maybe jealousy of his accomplishments. What [has] all of that got to do with his eye and hand coordination?? He and Sammy brought the game of baseball back to the American people. Give him what he has earned!!!" — lymar2vcr

Comment of the Week:

About "A Bump in the Road" by Mary Cashiola and the controversial issue of speed-bump construction:

"Speaking of hitting them at speed, meet me on Avalon for the first annual Memphis Speed Bump 'Bullitt' Memorial Contest. ... First one to catch air under all four tires wins."
