What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "A (Verbal) Shootout at the Agricenter":
"I think we can regulate the load carried by ammo and still be within most people's definition of the Second Amendment.

Back to the article, I found that LSD made me a much better marksman, especially when it came to all those giant flying weasels. So relax." — CL Mullins

About "On Eve of Budget Talks, Strickland Warns Against Property Tax Increase":
"Memphis is in a fight for its life. We can't keep going on with business as usual. We have to forgo the fratricidal politics of the last 40 years and instead create the conditions that make people want to come to Memphis, not leave it. Part of that is reducing the total tax burden on people so that they can afford to make the choice to settle here." — OakTree

About "Judge Joe Brown, Ousted from His CBS Courtroom, Could Run for Senate":
"He is a heck of a nice guy. ... He is not an apologist for anti-social behavior by people who wind up in his court. Joe Brown is worthy of genuine respect. He is interesting and an independent thinker. I like him; and I like the idea of his U.S. Senate candidacy." — Steve Tapp

About "Rating UM President Shirley Raines," who last week announced her retirement:
"I salute Dr. Raines. Against some tough odds (little support from the State of Tennessee, a metro area with a massive alumni presence from all points, and a large reservoir of bad feeling toward the school due to its history) she has managed to lead and grow the institution to impressive heights in lean times. Bravo-Zulu, Dr. Raines." — jrgolden

Comment of the Week:
About "It's All About Boiled Peanuts":
"Boiled peanuts are God's snack." — staythirstymyfriends
