What They Said 

About "Danger Games" and the racial undercurrents of The Hunger Games:

"If there was any message I took away from The Hunger Games, the gender issues it dealt with struck me as far more significant than the racial issues. Consider all of the fuss over Katniss' appearance and clothing, all on top of the fact that she's struggling to survive in an ordeal to the death like any conscripted male would have to." — autoegocrat

About "School Merger" and the need for somebody like General George S. Patton to take charge:

"This has absolutely nothing to do with the education of the children. It's all about politics, and in this day and time, nobody involved has the gumption to step up and take the bull by the horns. They are all worried about some future election, whether or not some might be offended, and God forbid that someone would actually take a stand." — lifespalette

About "People Gather at Overton Park for 4/20," an unofficial celebration for legalizing marijuana:

"I wanted to attend 4/20, but all the pizza delivery vehicles were slowing the traffic." — phlo

Comments of the Week:

About "Dear Governor Haslam":

"Yes, the Democrats have their problems and corruption knows no party, but as a whole, can anyone remember the last time our state was this big of a laughingstock? We used to make fun of the rest of the South for crap like this ... no more. Even Mississippi voters rejected the Personhood Amendment. God save us from these morons!"

— Michael Nienaber
