What They Said 

About "The Dark Shadows of Lara Parker" and the Memphis actress who played the original role in the TV series:

"A good character is only as good as the opposition character against him. Of course, Jonathan Frid was the best, and he was the show. But I will say you were the scariest witch I had ever seen at that point in my life and you made good memories for me as a devoted follower of Dark Shadows."


About "Ritz Survey Says School Consultants Low-balled Costs for New Municipal School Districts":

"Whether or not the consultants low-balled the cost of establishing MSDs, we know that many of the people clamoring to form them will pay whatever it takes to escape the clutches of a merged county school system, and we know that because of the experience of 'white flight' following the desegregation of the Memphis schools in 1972."


About "Lend Me Some Shoe Polish" and a community theater production that featured actors in blackface:

"I feel like the audience is asked to laugh at the absurdity of the situation, that two (usually physically and vocally dissimilar) actors could be mistaken for each other simply because they're wearing the same costume and makeup. Would the play be as funny if both Max and Tito were made up as Pagliaccio? I think so." — galenfott

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and the issue of same-sex marriage:

"If we legalize gay marriage, it will lead to people wanting to marry their pets, and thusly the unholy union of man and rock badger, which I just Googled and discovered is a type of hyrax. What will we tell the children?" — Kate
