What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "The Mosque of Rad Death" and the surprising (well, maybe not) number of Americans who believe President Obama is Muslim:

"Don't these idiots know that Obama is a Lutheran from Oslo? I think I saw his birth certificate in US magazine or something. Yeah, he's Norwegian all right. And a Lutheran. He stones alpacas and crap." — phlo

About "The Most Dangerous Neighborhood in Memphis?":

"Key phrase: 'Property crime and blight tend to go hand-in-hand.' If that's the case, most residences of Memphis will fall victim to crime because there is tremendous blight going on all over town. Drive east on Poplar Avenue and look at the businesses that have been boarded up. We're looking like a bigger rathole every day."


About "Equality on the Radio" and Janis Fullilove's radio show:

"The only reason there is very little interest in liberal shows is because hardly anyone wants to listen to them. And in the typical sore-loser liberal mentality they have to force people to listen to them. I guess what it boils down to is that everyone knows that they are liars."


Comment of the Week:

About "Trends: Just Wondering" whether American Apparel would stop advertising, among other topics:

"I was led to believe those models for American Apparel pictured on the back of the Memphis Flyer worked for Contemporary Media and posed as writers and commentators under various pseudonyms. This is a very cruel hoax. Someone's going to pay for this!" — tomguleff
