About "Don't Blame Teachers, Unions, or Families" for the problems facing Memphis City Schools, says author Wendy Kopp:

"I guess the only thing left to blame is a GHOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" — No Label

About "Mayor Warns Off Legislative Efforts to Obstruct MCS Referendum as 'Contemptible'":

"This needs to be an evolution, not a revolution. As it stands, a vote to consolidate now without a plan could have dire consequences for both the school system and the economy of Memphis. Are you willing to bet our future on the uncertain?" — hondo

About "Do Black People Think Alike?" and the issue of city/county school consolidation:

"The opponents of consolidation couldn't have done better to galvanize the opposition if they had organized this event themselves. Didn't these folks realize that in the process of preaching to the choir, they might be alienating the congregation?" — M Awesomeberg

Comment of the Week:

About "As Unions Go" and the decline in union membership:

"Chain those babies to the looms, boys! There's money to be made." — 38103
