What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Playing Small Ball" and the city budget battle:

"Why is it we won't take seriously the proposal by councilwoman Fullilove, to charge a toll fee for non-residents of Shelby County or Memphis (i.e., from Mississippi and Arkansas) to work here? That alone would probably put a huge dent in our budget crisis!" — mightyisis

About "He Went from Nudist to Exhibitionist" and a wife's concerns about her husband for doing just that:

"I wish my wife would have simply brought this to my attention first."

mad_merc

About "The Rant" and the "right-wing fringe element":

"What's going to be truly interesting is watching Bachmann and her husband dance around the gay conversion therapy he practices. Besides ... every time Mr. Bachmann opens his mouth a Louboutin falls out." — Clint

About "Mating Call" and why Memphis won't suffer from the 13-year cicadas:

"Suck on that, Forbes!" — cdel

About "Barbara Ware and the Divided City Council":

"I kinda disagree with [John] Branston's description of Barbara Swearengen Ware. But I think 'informed' is the adjective that doesn't fit. I would argue that she has often seemed surprisingly uninformed or misinformed, especially given how long she has been on the city council." — Strait Shooter

Comment of the Week:

About "Letter from the Editor" and the shortcomings of Congressman Anthony Weiner:

"Is this or is this not the first time in history that a pornographic photo of a member of Congress has entered general circulation?" — autoegocrat
