What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Frank Talk" and a classic study of voters suddenly switching sides:

"I think presidential politics is a lot like pro wrestling, just less believable." — CL Mullins

About "The Shark and How to Jump It" and Mitt Romney's floundering campaign:

"I'm just wondering when Mork is going to show up." — jeff

About "Duke 38, Tigers 14" and the U of M's worst start since 1998:

"They're trying and they care. That's two traits they lacked last season. Once they finally taste victory, and they will, they'll be a much better squad." — Midtown Mark

About "The Rant" and the notion that everything wrong with the world is Obama's fault:

"The hate-spewing is a distraction, and a convenient one at that. Even the people who hate the system can't stop hating each other long enough to change it (Dems & Repubs granted, see also: Occupy/Tea Party, Communists/Libertarians). We're all so used to getting screwed by our unreachable puppet masters that it seems like the only answer is to screw the other puppets for payback. What a grand, enlightened world we live in."

Comment of the Week:

About "Diplomacy Needed" and the fight for a nondiscrimination ordinance regarding sexual orientation:

"While you, along with the various mayors, claim not to discriminate against LGBT people, your tolerance is offered on the condition of invisibility. And that implicit demand for invisibility, while preferable to outright bigotry, just as surely keeps LGBT people from being full and equal citizens." — umcommprof
