What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "School Funding Lessons" and MCS' never-ending budget woes:

"This continues to make it clear that more money is not the solution — and presumably more teachers isn't either. ... If it were, things would have improved during this period, instead of getting worse." — better by design

About "For the Dogs" and council member Barbara Swearengen Ware's gripe that the city's new dog park is a waste of money:

"Maybe she thinks the animal shelter is a fun place, sort of like Chuck E. Cheese for dogs."

mad merc

About "Council, Commission Meet Over Consolidation":

"The worst part of this is many people, including elected officials, already have their minds made up. They are afraid to listen because something actually might make sense. We elect these officials to have open minds and make the tough decisions we can't. Most of these 'officials' have nothing more in mind than holding on to their own seats by voting the way a few of their deep-pocketed, loud-mouth constituents tell them. It's as sad as it's ever been." — Midtown Mark

About "Animal Friendly?" and the animal shelter director Matthew Pepper's new adoption policy:

"Mr. Pepper has only been in Memphis approximately three months. In this time he has made huge progress in turning the shelter in a positive direction." — stray

Comment of the Week:

About "The Footprint of the Oil Spill" and the ever-changing map of the damage in the Gulf:

"Um, I thought it was the environmentalists who sabotaged the thing in the first place. You know, as part of their leftist agenda to make us all wear solar panels on our heads." — autoegocrat
