What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Letters to the Editor" and the proposed "guns in bars" legislation:

"I say hell yeah, when the politicians say it's okay for these law-abiding, permit-carrying gun owners to come in their chambers locked and loaded, then they can cram their gun-loving laws down my throat. Until then, keep that ammo far, far away from any public gathering. ESPECIALLY where drunks are in mass." — ttenhut

"How many representatives from Memphis can even legally carry a gun with all of the criminal convictions and all?" — madmerc

About "Coffee, Anyone?" and the creation of a "Coffee Party" to oppose the "Tea Party Nation":

"C'mon, people, what is a lefty? What is a righty? Don't let these movements be co-opted by the respective parties. This is a true chance for people to right our sinking ship. Real change is needed and it won't come from the Democrats or the Republicans. It can only come from us. I support any type of real discussion rather than parroting the party line." — jumperno64

"Sitting around drinking coffee will sure show them damned politicians. You know the ones responsible for wasted lives in a war that's a lie. The ones who ordered secret detentions and torture. Tapped your phones. Made secret plans for martial law and the possible detention of American citizens. You go drink your coffee. When you are ready to light the torches and take up pitchforks, I'll show some interest." — lxlnxs

About "Anthropologie 101" and the new store opening in Saddle Creek:

"Yeah, right after we've checked out Megadeth at Minglewood, we'll rush right out to Germantown to check out the drawer pulls at Anthropologie. That's the ticket. Follow me, Muffie!" — AliasElias

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and Supreme Court justice John Roberts' complaint that he shouldn't have to attend State of the Union addresses:

"I'm not smart enough to interpret law. Hell, I get confused reading disclaimers. But doesn't Roberts look a lot like Alfred E. Neuman?" — julie noir
