What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Protesters Stage One Last Hurrah Against Banned CVS":

"Property rights are property rights. I don't like that CVS is tearing down this beautiful building, but no one seemed concerned as it sat and decayed. To the people of Midtown, do not let CVS shut down Ike's. That would be the real tragedy." — Clyde

About "Gas Is Going Up":

"Bruce, you can't invoke prayer in the same sentence with fuel-efficient technology. Those are two totally separate ideologies that are polar opposites and incompatible." — mad_merc

About "Changing Times" and the revolutions taking place here and abroad, which our commenters took in different directions, as usual:

"And God is like, I don't know why I go through all this trouble to save these people when I'm just going to have to send you down there to die for their sins. And Jesus is like, say what? And God is like, wait a second, I do know why. I'm omniscient. Of course I know! So why am I doing it anyway? I can't seem to stop myself. But I'm omnipotent. Can I stop myself? If I'm all powerful, I should be able to stop myself, but if I'm all powerful, I shouldn't be able to stop myself. Whoa. Mind scramble." — jeff

Comment of the Week:

About "Is a Merger Worth It?" and the school consolidation issue:

"Maybe someone needs to start a Neshoba Flyer so folks can get their progressive weekly news without being subject to the Memphis Flyer's strangely Memphis-leaning editorial slant."

— sbanbury
