What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "20 Under 30," by Andria Lisle:

"As a progressive 50-year-old, it's exciting for me to see such talented young Memphians with the passion and creativity to make things happen in this town." — Phlo

"A bunch of Rhodes who couldn't leave Memphis because the downturn in the market sunk their trust funds." — gbbarnes

About "Bianca Knows Best ... And Helps a Polyamorous Woman":

"If I could afford more wives, I'd get 'em."

— sbanbury

About "Ford's New York Senate Candidacy Freshly Imperiled by His Ties to Bank of America," by Jackson Baker:

"If the planets were all in alignment, Mr. Ford could be President Ford someday. But he is more likely destined to recite talking points on boring talk shows for the rest of his life." — Petra Kelly

About "The Politics of Skate Parks," by John Branston:

"I will tend to disagree that 'skateboarding is for the most part a white sport ... .' This may have been the case 20 years ago when I started, but that has long since stopped being the case. ... The only two professional skateboarders that have come out of Memphis so far have been black." — Gurley

About "Beyond the Arc: Sifting Through the Trade Chatter," by Chris Herrington:

"We can judge how serious Heisley is about building a winner by what happens to Rudy. Trading him now is a clear signal that the bottom line matters most. Rudy has significantly improved his on-court demeanor, toughness, and defense this year, attributes that stem from hard work and dedication. He is clearly getting better and needs to remain part of the team if we are to ascend to the playoffs and beyond." — Herschel

Comment of the Week:

About "How Long, America?" and Marty Aussenberg's observation that you know the economy is bad when the man with the longest penis in America can't find a job:

"I can't wait until we have to go through body scanners and the world will get to see all those man packages."
