What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "No More Jager Bombs?" and a bill that would outlaw energy drinks in bars:

"This is America, right? My grandfathers did not fight world wars so one day we could pass this communist bill. I say NAY to this legislation! DON'T TREAD ON ME!! Jager bombs are God's way of telling us he loves us." — lebowski

About "Going Nuclear" and the problems with nuclear power:

"As a byproduct, you have to cool the spent nuclear material for years before you can store it in another 'safe' location until the radioactivity drops to non-two-headed-baby-causing levels. Did I mention getting to non-two-headed-baby levels takes longer than any civilization in the history of the world has existed?" — Doubting Thomas

About "The End of Public Housing in Memphis":

"My little section of Cordova used to be nice until [MHA executive director Robert] Lipscomb emptied the projects into the apartments along Germantown Parkway. This move has done nothing to solve the very real problems of poverty or crime. It's only spread those civic cancers more broadly." — awculv

About "The Rant" and the Republican Party's attitude toward the working class:

"Middle-class working people shouldn't support either major political party. The D's and the R's only care about three things: Money (R's want it for themselves, D's want to give yours to others); power (without it, they'd be like us commoners); not you (if they did, they'd pick their battles better and get something accomplished besides stalemating and pissing each other off.)" — Sighhhh

Comment of the Week:

About "Crunch Time in Tennessee" and the GOP's "radical agenda":

"Move over, Montana — Tennessee's the new crazy state." — cdel
