What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Letter from the Editor" and the neverending saga of global warming. Another commenter suggested a local panel of meteorologists to discuss it:

"Hell, forget any sort of panel. Let's just have 'ClimateCage.' First round: Cap'n Coal vs. the AAKS (Army of Asthmatic Kids). Round Two: Mr. AstroTurf vs. Dr. EggHead. Final Fight: LobbyJob vs the USA." — cr33

About "A Month Ago, Cohen Foresaw Hart's Ninth District Challenge — and Nailed It":

"Cohen nailed it. Everybody I've met who gets involved in politics (myself included) imagines themselves one day running for president. You can distinguish the wise from the foolish by how they temper those lofty ambitions against reality." — autoegocrat

About "Do Ask, Do Tell" and the repeal of the policy banning gays in the military:

"About time, I have to say. I would like to think that the [Department of Defense] would do the right thing and revert all of those less-than-honorable discharges to honorable." — mad_merc

Comment of the Week:

"Not to read too much into this, but it's obviously an omen — the RED train, out of control with no brakeman, slammed into the BLUE train that stood its ground, and, from the picture, the RED train is the worst for it."

— sbanbury
