What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Letter from the Editor," which some readers didn't like:
"Don't be so hard on BVW. He's worried about the future of the newspaper business, and he's hoping to land a job writing dialogue for the next TV sitcom. I, for one, think he has a real chance to realize that dream." — Drift Boat

About "Downtown Heritage Trail Gets a Hearing":
"How much of this TIF money is for paying back the HUD money Robert borrowed to buy the county's share of the Pyramid, and, maybe more importantly, why was Bass Pro more important than the things that Congress intended it for?" — Scott Banbury

About "Educational Vouchers the Next Test Case in Tennessee?":
"I feel real queasy about the prospect of my tax money flowing into private schools. Publicly approved charter schools, sure. But private schools, often controlled by religious groups, not so much. If Kelsey can demonstrate a clear and certain benefit to these poor children, maybe, but I still would be very uneasy." — ArlingtonPop

About "Memphis Schools: A Year in Limbo?":
"I think for this to work, the MSD law needs to be passed in a different form. Time will tell if it is. I know the suburban interests won't just give up, though, and all avenues will be exhausted before letting our schools go. If all possibilities are explored ... and all fail, then it'll be a 5-10 year exodus of population instead." — GroveReb84

Comment of the Week:
About "Tennessee Awarded Title of Worst State Legislature":
"Makes my heart swell with pride. Or pus. Something." — jeff
