About "With a Schools Summit at Hand, the Questions and Dangers Proliferate":

"I say surrender the charter of MCS. The whole dual system was nothing more than a continuation of the 'separate but equal' policies of the not-too-distant past anyway." — mad_merc

About "The Rant" and the days when Memphis — and Elvis — fully supported the U of M men's basketball team:

" '... a huge crowd showed up at the airport to greet the returning team, including Elvis Presley.' I didn't remember Elvis being a part of that team. He must have truly been a talented man." — nutnbtwork

Comment of the Week:

About "Fend off Gay-Haters with Krav Maga":

"Me and my mates ... goes up to folks and we says, 'Are you saved?' Most of 'em says yes and tries to run away. That's when we cast the socialist net over 'em, drag 'em down like a giraffe on Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, beat 'em senseless with our lead-weighted Bibles, and induct 'em into the homosexual lifestyle." — jeff
