What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Tennessee Tea Party Wants Education Reform":

"I understand that Africans actually volunteered in droves to escape their homes and travel in coach-class accommodations to apprentice (for ensuing multiple generations) to kindly paternal Christian slavemasters in America, THE GREATEST AND MOST PERFECT COUNTRY GOD EVER PLACED ON THIS EARTH. They did this knowing it was a way to take advantage of 19th-century white men's benevolence and wisdom."

About "The Rant," which somehow linked the dead birds with Oprah Winfrey's new channel:

"I am surprised that mention of a DNA-genome specific ray was being tested to see if a particular species could be killed within the ray's area of effect, while leaving everything else untouched. While you WILL get results for such a search on the Net, I'll just get mum about any other theories and simply raise an eyebrow and give you 'that look.' "

About "A See-Saw Struggle" and the showdown between city and county school districts:

"I believe that the primary driver of many players in the creation of MCS as it is today has been an overwhelming desire to have wolves and lambs in the same room so that they may find amusement in the slaughter." — gollybgosh

About "Trade Him" and Memphis Tiger Wesley Witherspoon:

"Drive. Turnover. Easy lay-up. Repeat. (I wish I could animate this.)" — 38103

Comment of the Week:

About "It Gets Curiouser: MCS Board Votes to Meet and Consider New Stand-Down Plan from County":

"Har har har. This is painfully funny. It's like watching Jackass: The School Board." — jeff
