What They Said 

About "Blunt Assessment" and Tennessee's marijuana laws:

"Slippery slopes are usually coated with some form of bullshit." — 38103

About "Letter from the Editor" on the same topic:

"You may have seen corporate executives smoking pot, but you won't see their employees doing it because they all have to pass mandatory drug tests, even if all they do is answer a phone. Where big brother government can't legally go, corporate America is perfectly happy to intrude." — jeff

About "The Rant" and America's love affair with oil:

"The part that really baffles me about the Hummer is that after driving them in the military, why in the world would anyone want to drive one? — mad merc"

About "Who Were the West Memphis Cop Killers?":

"Where is the proof that the two vans, and the two sets of guys, are the same? Where are the videos from the cop cars, the Walmart security cams, the police audio tapes, the 911 and police dispatchers? Are two cop-killer Hispanic guys still on the loose with AK47s? Will the cops try to find them, or will they just try the two dead white guys, because they can't mount a defense from the grave?" — Tex

About "Teachers, Education Reform, and Unions":

"Over the last three years, as a teacher, I have averaged a 2 percent increase per year in pay — so what difference does it make? The entire compensation for teachers must be evaluated!" — Hawkeye

Comment of the Week:

About "Letter from the Editor" and marijuana laws:

"OD on alcohol and you go to the ER or the morgue. OD on weed and you go to sleep." — Packrat
