What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Delta Fair and Music Festival" and pig wrasslin':

"The thought of buxom young ladies in overalls wallering in the mud with a pig makes me all homesick." — jeff

About "Busy Hands" and a new program to put juvenile offenders to work:

"It's not about redemption. It is all about changing paths. Showing kids how to reshape their perception in a way that pleases THEM and not the adults around them. Parents aren't paying attention to their kids, and Memphis is not a very community-based city unfortunately. This exposes teens to new realities they would otherwise probably never experience." — Natalie Frazier

About "City Candidates and Their Backers Go Public in Endorsement Ceremonies":

"The unions are taking a dangerous position by endorsing another candidate, when it is very likely that Mayor Wharton will be re-elected." — john316

About "Front and Center" and the new "sharrow" bike-lane markings:

"I'd like to see some changes to the bike code that are a little bit more realistic and contemporary, but for now, it's 'ride like every car is a weapon, intent upon your destruction.' Still, I can't see how the markings on Front will hurt, and if even one person learns that bikes are allowed on the road — well, I'd count that as a win." — cr33

Comment of the Week:

About "Cohen's District to Go Country" and the possibility of redistricting:

"After banjo pickin', will he have to begin wearing those red gingham shirts?"

— mayfield
