What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "John Ford Could Be Home This Year" after an appeals court overturned his bribery conviction:

"Someone out there should think of a 20-word job title so that Mayor Wharton can appoint John Ford to that position."


About "School's Out" and problems at Omni Prep Academy:

"Just as you never make a new pilot captain of the ship or give a new lawyer a murder case, new teachers shouldn't be thrown to the wolves the way they are. They should spend a year or two working as co-teachers with more experienced educators willing to serve as mentors. And if wishes were horses, monkeys might fly out my butt." — jeff

About "Shave and a Haircut: Barber of Seville Opens at Cannon Center:

"How doooooooooooo! Come into my shop. Let me cut your mop. Let me shave your crop — daintily, daintily. Hey Yoooooouuuuuu! Don't look so perplexed. Why should you be vexed? Can't you see you're next? Yes you're next. You're so next." — fancycwabs

Comment of the Week:

About "Tennessee House Overturns Scopes 'Monkey Trial' Verdict":

"Tennessee backwoods and possum-eating? My sister and I agree that's just ridiculous. And so do our two children, Muskrat and Limb." — phlo
