What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Letter from the Editor" and the demise of the daily newspaper:

"Yikes — without my daily paper I would be forced to find new sources of raw material to complete my giant paper-mache tribute to William Randolph Hearst." — barf

About: "SOS: Mamma Mia needs help":

"I will be seeing this show for the fifth or sixth time, Saturday. I have seen it over the years and saw the movie. Each time I love it more." — Elizabeth Lisa McGeorge

About "Keeping It Together" and the never-ending school consolidation debate:

"What's the saying about actions being greater than words? You are telling me again to give it a chance with no (and I do mean NO) reason why it is beneficial to my child. The actions alone of the current school board are enough to make sure that I never allow my child to be part of the USB." — homersimpson

About "Answers? (Prometheus, Part II) and lots of questions about the movie:

"What ruined the film for me is Ridley's smug response that they're not the same planet. Okay then, that makes it unrelatable to the Alien franchise and thus a piece of crap movie. Why not say it's the same damn planet?" — mehart2001

About "Cohen v. Holder on Delta Conundrum":

"I wouldn't be so hot on Frontier. Sadly, they swallowed up Midwest and did to Milwaukee exactly what Delta seems to be doing to Memphis. Frontier now flies to only 5 destinations other than Denver from MKE." — about to move to MKE

Comment of the Week:

About "The Easiest Tax" and the prospect of increasing the sales tax:

Why doesn't Memphis seriously consider contraction? Or would that be de-annexing? Hell, call it whatever you like, but the simple fact is the city is too spread out to support the level of services it tries to offer."
