About "Candlelight Vigil for Teen Suicide Victims Tonight":

"How many young, innocent lives must we lose before groups like Focus on the Family soften their hearts and work with us instead of against us to combat this horribly hypocritical and political issue of gay bullying and discrimination?" — Hoyle

About "Haslam Says He'd Do Away With Gun Permits":

"Regarding the murder rate in California: Have you even seen one Schwarzenegger movie? It's how we roll here." — CL Mullins

About "Why I Like Yuengling" and the brewer's plans to move into the former Coors facility here:

"What's all this fuss about fluoride and chlorine in your water? Don't be such weenies. Personally, I like my fluids as laden with heavy metals as possible. That's one problem I have with Memphis. That vaunted artesian-well water is so lackluster." — Mrs. Bartlebynna Beanblossom

Comment of the Week:

About "Stripped Down" and proposed new rules for topless-club owners:

"Let me see if I can get this right. First, we don't want anyone to build a mosque. Second, we don't want to guarantee equal rights to our LGBT neighbors. Third, we don't want anyone looking at naked women. But, by God, we want everyone to carry a gun with them!! So just exactly how are the far-right wingnuts different from the Taliban???" — mad_merc
