What They Said 

About "Angie's Big Love for Paula Deen" and a Memphis woman's online "celebration":

"I'm so excited about a Paula Deen celebration that I'd prefer to host it, if that's cool. We'll have fun and games aplenty, including 'Bobbing for Old Grease,' 'Pin the Tail on That Fat Guy's Lard-Ass,' and a new one I made up, called 'Oh My Dear God, Lisa, Call 911 Now! Mama's Got a Tenderloin Lodged in Her Trachea!'"

About "20<30" and young Memphians who may shape our city's future. Or not:

"When I look at all these fresh faces, I am reminded of all the equally lauded compiled fresh faces who have come before and subsequently mucked things up so badly. But I'm sure this batch will be different." — CL Mullins

About "New Digs" and expansion of the Union Mission:

This is good news for homeless folk and for downtown [but] I wonder where homeless men get the six dollars they need after the free nights run out? A person's homeless condition rarely gets solved in four days." — Drift Boat

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and the cost of growing old:

"If there were no insurance at all, medical costs would not be what they are today for the simple reason that no one could afford them. Insurance creates the need for insurance by allowing the burden of extreme prices to be socialized and shared by everyone (who has insurance), thereby making it impossible to live without insurance." — jeff
