What They Said 

About "Magnetic Nail Polish":

"Next thing you know, they'll be putting stripes in toothpaste." — jeff

About "Secession and Separate Schools in Charlotte, N.C." and the similarities with Memphis:

"Ballantyne is a neighborhood in Charlotte. They are not their own city like how the suburban cities of Shelby County are at all. They would like to break away from Charlotte and form their own city since they are but a neighborhood now. It would be like if East Memphis proper wanted to break away, basically." — merlin

About "Norris Bill on Municipal Districts Moves — but Faces New Dilemma":

"The really odd thing about the anti-muni forces is that they seem to think that they own the children. That's right, own. That's what I said. That's what it means when they talk of 'siphoning off ADA funding' and 'cultural diversity.'" — ESAU

About "Still With Us" and poverty in America:

"I predict that the collapse of the American empire will not come at the hands of some foreign power. It will come from within. To put it in a more theological light, the sins of the fathers will be visited on the sons. The children are not guilty of adultery when the father is mired in an affair, but you can bet your last dollar they will experience the consequences of a broken home, broken trust, and broken father image. Not to mention that when momma isn't happy, ain't nobody going to be happy." — lifespalette

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and the Republican Party's war on women:

"Every dark cloud has a silver lining, but lightning kills hundreds of people each year who are trying to find it."
