What They Said 

About "If I Were King of Memphis" and what King Bruce VanWyngarden might do:

"Memphians need to quit trying to make a vocal minority of suburbanites like us and just focus on making the city better. I think it's making strides with the Greenline, bike lanes, and Wharton's economic development efforts. The city is becoming a better place to live for families with children also. I know Peabody Elementary in Cooper-Young has placed an emphasis on attracting neighborhood kids and it's worked. It's like friggin' Mayberry in Midtown." — Tennessee Drew

About "The City/County/State Annexation Stand-off for Dummies":

"The ghost of Henry Loeb rattles his chains ..." — packrat

About "A Two-Front War" and the school annexation issue:

"If folks (regardless of race) had been as concerned about the quality of MCS education around the time of integration as they are about SCS now, who knows what our city schools would look like now." — wvfii

About "Weekend Report: Egypt, International Paper, FedEx, and Susan Komen":

"The money spent on cancer treatment dwarfs the money spent on cancer research. Gee, I wonder why?"

Comment of the Week:

About "Radioactive Rubbish" and nuclear waste in city landfills:

"I had no idea this was going on. I suppose because I was too involved with having the second nose removed from my left elbow."phlo
