What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Memphis Tigers Banner Banter," and the U of M's "vacated" tournament wins:

"Can you spell fraud?"

Chris in Midtown

About "Skatepark Location in Question":

"If you want something more centrally located, put the skatepark in the Overton Square parking lot now that the developers have backed out. In a perfect world, the owners of that property would donate the lot for this project ... and watch those empty shops fill up with all kinds of cool stores and eateries for the skaters." — julie noir

"Just bulldoze the Pink Palace and put it there. Or raze the Coliseum. Or Le Bonheur. Whatever. Just giterdun!" — hoodatbe

About "All Have Won, All Must Have Prizes at Educational Forum":

"This looked like a beauty pageant. Nothing particularly creative happened and all agreed that the state's education system needs improvement ... much like a beauty queen extolling, 'We need world peace.'" — bruingeek

About "A $75 Million Error in MCS Funding":

"If the people running the schools can't count, how do they expect the students to?" — mad merc

Comment of the Week:

Also about "A $75 Million Error in MCS Funding":

"Class. Class! CLASS! Thank you. Now who can tell me how to count the number of students enrolled in the Memphis City School system. ... Yes, Little Jenny. Please tell us. 'You take the number of students who enroll in each school, and you add them all together.' I'm sorry, Little Jenny, that is not correct ..." — jeff
