What They Said 

About "Hungry Memphis" and a visit to a new place in Collierville called Booya's:

"Wait, are we bashing a SPORTS BAR for POSSIBLE INAUTHENTICITY?" — mayostard

About "The Rant" and the controversial voter ID laws:

"Tennessee already is solid red when it comes to the presidential election, so this isn't a ploy to get your boy out of office." — Grizzman

About "Naifeh Is Wrong on Segregation Claim" when he says that Shelby County schools are indeed segregated:

"This is not about racism! This is about wanting our children to attend schools in a city that are not last in the state! This is about our children's education and their future! This is about their ability to learn and have the right capacity to do so. This is not about racism!" — Libby

About "The Shelby County School Muddle for Dummies: An Update":

"As for the Shelby 'burbs and their hired help, they can bang their collective heads and pay consultant fees until they turn purple and nothing will change. The rest of the state will not let collective actions within one county by a few suburbs force a school system as large as the one in Shelby County to fail. Nice try. Pick up your own tab!!" — Mid TN

Comment of the Week:

About "State of Denial" and not-so-rosy predictions for nine major civic projects:

"Your nine ring true, but how do we get the mayor, council, and other decision-makers to take off the rose-colored glasses and make decisions based on facts? Seems like that's the first step."
