What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Sign of the Times" and the Forrest Park controversy:
"I think the whole point is that the sign was not approved. I can't just go get a granite memorial statue of myself and place it at City Hall and not expect the city to remove it. In addition, fines for unapproved placement of the sign and fines for removal should be levied." — Leno

About "Postgame Notebook: Grizzlies 101, Spurs 98 (OT) — We Had a Massive Night":
"I hope our new owners were watching this game and realize that Rudy Gay is an integral part of this team's success. I understand the economics of the situation, but for fans like me who have stuck with this team for a decade through thick and thin, we deserve one last shot at playoff success with the current roster." — grizzdoc

About "The Baseball Hall of Fame on Steroids?"
"Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, Roger Clements, and, probably some of the other players of the steroid period deserve to be in the Hall because of their on-field performance. But we don't have to honor them while they are alive. Let them take to their graves the knowledge that, at some point, their names and records will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame, but we don't have to salute them in person." — Reuben Kyle

Comment of the Week:
About "Cherry Party Hosts a Big Burlesque Show":
"We need more burlesque and fewer gun shows." — mad_merc
