What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "It's Obama! 4 More Years":
"Until the Republicans refrain from treating Fox News and Rush Limbaugh as gospel, they will forever be in the dark about what the majority thinks."

About "Block Party" and Cleveland Street's makeover:
"We can have a yearly Pirates of the Caribbean festival. One requirement of the neighborhood is to always walk around with an eyepatch. I'm sure plenty of Fortune 500 companies will find their way to the 'Pirate' neighborhood."

About "Memphis Is a Patch of Blue in a Red Sea":
"Memphis squandered its last chances of having a real impact at the state or national level a decade ago. Unfortunately, the more difficult it becomes to surmount issues that have a particular bent to them due to local demographics (crime, education, service support), the more this little corner of the state will wish it had said influence." — barf

About "Election 2012: Winners and Losers":
"I scoff at anyone who thinks their favored party has the market cornered on what is right for the country, or that their party has the market cornered on good people and the others are all idiots. Reality is, the further right you go, the dumber you get. The further left you go, the dumber you get. The closer to the equilibrium you get, the more likely you are to find semi-intelligent thought."
