What They Said 

About "The Letter" and rapper Don Trip's rise to stardom:

"Unfortunately, one minor aspect of Mr. Trip's rags-to-riches story is a stark and disturbing testament to a problem in our society that some chose to minimize or ignore completely. Selling illegal drugs on the streets while waiting for your rap career to take off has become analogous to aspiring actors waiting tables while seeking their breakout role."

About "Occupy Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium":

"I still think we could plug up all the holes, fill it with water, and stock it with bass."

About "Still Perkin'" and the Tea Party movement:

"The SCS was never the great school system that people claimed, and conversely MCS did have some great programs and some positive outcomes. There is no reason that the best of both systems could not be used to build a solid base for a new and better system."

About "Marshall 23, Tigers 22":

"If we convert to hockey we would have a winning season since we are ahead after three quarters but not after four."
Jay Willis

Comment of the Week:
About "Rotary Club Study Points to Big Problems at Animal Shelter":

"Stop hiring thugs and felons to care for lost dogs and cats. If you hire people who make a living from stealing from others, and people who abuse humans for fun, how then are we to expect anything different when they are put in charge of the care of animals?"
