What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Lost Horizon" and the 16-story South Bluffs condo development that was never completed:

"Can people not read census data? Where were all the well-to-do people who were going to buy one of these? Oh that's right, they didn't exist, just like the census data said." — Doubting Thomas

About "Would You Share a Cup of Coffee with This Woman?" and columnist Cheri DelBrocco's notion of holding "coffee parties" as alternatives to the "tea party" movement:

"No. I recognize a blatant attempt to mute the Tea Party voice that grows ever louder as mid-term elections draw near. Progressives, you have had your time at bat. All have witnessed the chaos and destruction of a bankrupt philosophy put in practice by an inexperienced leader that appears woefully unqualified for the top job in the nation." — zebra

"Absolutely! This is what the DEMOCRATIC process is all about! People having the right to gather and discuss political views and perhaps find a way to make things better." — Tammy Warren

About "The Rant" and the fear that after earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, Memphis may be next:

"Since I have four acoustic guitars, a harmonica, assorted blocks and sticks, and one kid's flutophone, I'm well prepared for the coming Acoustic Age Armageddon." — packrat

About "High Hopes" and the new director of the city's animal shelter:

"I hope Mr. Pepper is up to the job. I also hope he is actually allowed to do his job and won't have his hands tied by all the bureaucratic b.s. in the city." — GeekNoire

Comment of the Week:

About those "coffee parties" with Cheri DelBrocco:

"I'm proud to introduce our new grassroots organization, 'BlotterAcid America.' We don't expect to accomplish much politically, but future events include a screening of Fantasia and a meet-and-greet with Peppy Castro of the Blues Magoos." — phlo
