What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Letters to the Editor" and changes to the Voting Rights Act:
"Get used to it, Jimmy boy! The Zombies are coming and there ain't nuthin' you can do about it ... uhhh, except whine!" — Crazyreb

About "Q&A with Abby Wallace," named one of the nation's top 10 animal defenders:
"We need more people like her. I think animal abuse is next to the lowest form of life there is. Child molester is number one. It is unbelievable the people in Memphis who think there is nothing wrong with animal abuse. One of the first signs of a serial killer or mental problems is animal torture. Kudos to Abby Wallace." — clarion

About "Quick Shooting" and the passing of legislation allowing guns in parking lots:
"Gosh, it's almost like these Republicans don't care for all that messy democracy stuff — you know, disagreements, debates, discussions, compromises. As a system of government, they're not opposed to democracy, per se, as long they get to make all the decisions and no one disagrees with them, not even other Republicans." — jeff

About "Obstructing From Within" and city/county school consolidation:
"There will never be a 'unified' system because the community is too divided to unite. In fact, based on Ritz's column, the only thing that appears to unify the decision-makers is that the unified system is not a good thing. The only winners will be the counties surrounding Shelby as more of the middle class leave. Olive Branch was already the fastest growing city in the U.S. due to the exodus from Shelby County before the unified schools fiasco started, per USA Today." — David

About "The Commercial Appeal and Hospital Salaries":
"Wow, 3 million a year for a nonprofit, never woulda imagined. Wow. But then again kinda explains the high prices." — juce

Comment of the Week:
About "The Rant" and the need for changes in the GOP:
"Awesome when political parties give advice to each other on how to reform. The mirror breaks every time." — tomguleff
