About "Crime and Punishment in the River City: The Swearengen-Ware Case" and the city councilmember's "official misconduct" charges:

"Memphis is one of the most violent, crime-ridden places on earth and this is what shows up on our news. I guess this is a form of 'Blue Crush.' Great job, guys! You should be real proud of yourselves for putting this dangerous criminal behind bars." — Tray

About "Can Raleigh Spring Back?"

"Think of what Raleigh and Frayser might look like today if they had not been annexed, but had their own government. The same goes for Whitehaven. The city is just too spread out to make it feasible to provide a reasonable level of services at a reasonable price. It's time to de-annex most everything outside of the 240 loop." — mad_merc

About "The Regulation Issue" and newly elected governor Bill Haslam's stand on gun permits:

"Rest assured it isn't the part about guns that scares the Flyer in those two cases. It is the part about 'the people' having equal rights." — neondragon

About "Rep. Todd Compares Children of Illegal Immigrants to Rats":

"Maybe Todd is coached by Sarah Palin? Or auditioning for Glenn Beck?" — Mayfield

Comment of the Week:

About "The Undead Party Is Back" and the return of Republicans to power:

"Ya gotta hand it to the Republicans, they don't let principles of honesty, fairness, and decency get in the way of attaining power. It's all about power, how to get it and how to keep it."
