What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Senate Blocks Campfield's 'Starve the Children' Bill, Sends It Off to 'Summer Study'":
"The Tennessee legislature — our very own homegrown Fagins, Monks, and Sikes. 'May I have more, sir?'" — jrgolden

About "A (Verbal) Shootout at the Agricenter Gun Show":
"By 2015, the deaths from gun violence are expected to EXCEED the number of ALL traffic fatalities (DUI or other). Universal background checks for all gun purchases, renewal of the assault weapons ban, and eliminating high-capacity magazines (anything more than 10 rounds) will not eliminate all gun violence. But it WILL reduce it. Just as effective drunk driving laws and enforcement have reduced the deaths from DUI by 40 percent, these proposed measures will reduce gun violence in this country." — Molly MacLeod-Roberts

About "Mall Plan Would Give Raleigh 'a Fighting Chance'":
"It's just more throwing good money after bad. Nothing's improved in that area since the mall anchors and national retailers threw in their towels and left. Between the out-of-control shoplifting and employee thievery and the reluctance of shoppers to patronize the mall for fear of their own safety getting from their car to the stores, it made turning a profit next to impossible. What's changed in that area? Answer: Nothing." — JuliusJones

Comment of the Week:
About "Letter from the Editor" and "the alternate universe inhabited by the Tennessee General Assembly":
"In a nutshell, we have the leadership that we deserve. A confederacy of dunces."— jrgolden
