What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Soggy Ground" and flooding problems with Lick Creek:

"Why are we taxpayers once again paying an outside group to look into our problems? Am I not already paying (or overpaying) salaries, pension benefits, etc., for the city to have competent people do this, or is it staffed by Willie's old bodyguards?"

About "Overton Park Legacy" and the future of the park:

"I love Overton Park and thank the 'little old ladies in tennis shoes' that stopped our city from becoming an interstate pass-through 40 years ago." — ParkNeighbor

About "Saggy Pants" and Westside High's "Urkel" program to zip-tie students' sagging pants:

"Students need to understand that by simply changing their appearance, they can begin to ultimately change their outlook and mindset from a culture of 'it's whatever' to a culture of 'social and academic excellence.'"

Comment of the Week:

About "On the Scene: Cyndi Lauper at the Warehouse":

"Nothing says the blues like a millionaire diva's invitation-only concert. Take that, Furry!"
