What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Fly on the Wall" and the "Going Rate" and a botched pizza delivery robbery, where the lookout was paid in pizza:

"Going to jail for three slices of pizza — it don't get much worse than that." — jeff

About "A Day in the Life" of the Shelby County Commission:

"Steve Mulroy might champion constitutional liberties, but he is no friend of women's health care in Memphis. Who ever heard of a pro-life liberal? Mulroy is the first." — stapledondia

About "Mixed Messages from the August 2nd Election Round":

"I was one of the District 93 voters who got an incorrect ballot and caught it during early voting. I have NO confidence in the results of that primary. I want to see proof that the misdirected ballots did not make a substantial difference, or I want a special election. I went through every political contact in my arsenal to get my ballot fixed for election day." — Michelle Swanson Bliss

About "Some Unofficial Thoughts on That Subpoena Request":

"The comment sections of all the online media sites would evaporate overnight if we had to do something as unreasonable as take responsibility for our own posts by associating our names with them." — barf

About "Less Is More" and a proposal for fewer voter precincts:

"I like the way Australia votes. Everyone is required to vote or face a small fine ($20 or so), and voting day is a national holiday. Seems to work great, and they have very high voter turnout, along the lines of 95%." — clegg

Comments of the Week:

About "Suburbs Hang a 'Bagel' on Unified Schools; How Should Memphis Respond?":

"This whole unfortunate situation could have been avoided with a combination of black mollies, microdot, and airplane glue. That particular combination would f#ck us up so badly that we'd be reminded we're all in this thing together." — phlo
