What They Said 

About "The Unnatural State" and the natural gas industry vs. the environment in Arkansas:

"We just continually kick the can down the road and delay the inevitable fact that America will need a renewable and sustainable energy supply. The estimates of available shale gas have been reduced to around 20 years worth and that's at present consumption rates. They aren't making any more of it, just scheming more environmentally dangerous and more expensive methods of extracting what little is left." — Robert Finne

About "Catwalking in Memphis: Saturday of Memphis Fashion Weekend":

"This looks like a fun time, but why do all the female models pose pigeon-toed?"

Phil S. Teen

About "Weather Break" and current legislative actions, which prompted comments about a proposed animal cruelty ordinance and (as usual) the commenters themselves:

"My lifelong best friend (and big toe) is a partner at the esteemed law firm of Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe. He thinks all of you are bat shit crazy. I tend to agree with his very concise and expert legal opinion." — phlo

About "Hypothetical Question: Would a Whole Foods Make It in Midtown?":

"We had a Whole Foods in Midtown. It was called Squash Blossom, and it thrived before the corporate consolidation of good food."

Scott Banbury

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and Dick Cheney's heart transplant:

"I hear tell that now that Cheney's gotten his heart, Bush can finally get his brain."

— M_Awesomeberg
