What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Beale Street Landing's Colorful Topper" and the controversy over a rendering of the landing's brightly hued future sign:

"This monstrosity of ugliness should be redesigned as a pigeon coop. Then we could attach messages to the birds' legs and let the world know how stunningly uncreative the RDC is." — Phlo

About Bruce VanWyngarden's "Letter from the Editor" and the emails from readers claiming Obama wasn't born in America:

"The Founders were 'birthers.' That is why the requirement is in the U.S. Constitution. If we violate it, we get a leader who will possibly not have 100 percent loyalty to these United States. Most presidents are self-serving for the most part anyway." — CHG

About "The New Paradigm," the Flyer cover story on how local officials can't control high Delta airfares:

"There you have it — every one of our political and business leaders has the same story: 'There's nothing I can do but hope Southwest comes in, but they won't because our market is crap.' How about a comprehensive business plan for Memphis and Shelby County?" — Cville

About "Stretch of Madison Avenue Downtown to Open by Fall" after a building partially collapsed last year:

"Madison Avenue was once a pleasant street on which to travel. That was before Herenton ruined it with his ghost trolley to nowhere. I have yet to see a single passenger on it." — Chris in Midtown

Comment of the Week

About "The New Paradigm":

"Either Mark Norris is kidding about 'taking care' of lowering gas prices or this is just another example of his world-class hubris. He had as much to do with lowering gas prices as he did with killing Osama bin Laden."

— M Awesomeberg
