What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Plugging the BP Leak: What's Your Idea?"

"Send Chuck Norris down there. The oil will then be afraid to leak." — B

About "New York Times Takes Note of Cohen Bill on Student Loans" and the congressman's plan to make it easier to repay such loans:

"Glad to see Steve's moving past the 'Get on the Colbert show' stage in his psychological odyssey." — wintermute

About "Anthony 'Amp' Elmore Kicks Out at Former Hero Herenton" and the kick-boxing champion's support of Cohen in the congressional race:

"I don't hear Herenton challenging Elmore to a fighting match. Hmmmmm ..." — mad merc

About "Letter from the Editor" and the Republicans' desire to "throw the bums out" of office, which included charts explaining the budget crisis:

"I will be holding a chart-reading class tomorrow at the Ag Center. Teabaggers get in free with a picture of Sarah Palin in a bikini." — 38103

About "Private Practice" and the possibility of privatizing sanitation and other city departments:

"It's hard to feel much sympathy for a group that can work 4 hours and collect pay for an 8-hour day." — Smitty1961

Comment of the Week:

About "Tough Luck Transit" and how MATA deals with legitimate customer complaints — or doesn't:

"MATA goes where you don't want it to go, doesn't go where you need it to go, goes there sometimes but doesn't return, and (for the love of Mike) doesn't go to the airport terminals? ... The trolley is for fun, folks, and it is. The bus is for work, and it doesn't."
