What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About “Another View of the N-Word”:
“I think what jams up so many white folk is that it is a bit of black culture that can’t be appropriated. Nearly every other black style, word, phrase, gesture, musical innovation — you name it — has been appropriated by the Man, but this is one word that can’t be and won’t be.” — jeff

About “Letter from the Editor” and the Paula Deen controversy:
“Bruce, one of your father’s friends said the N-word? I think you should resign immediately. Yes, that is how ridiculous this thing with Paula Deen is. She answered her questions honestly. She should have just lied.”
— Chris in Midtown

About “No More Auto Inspections for Memphis”:
“The EPA has ruled that all of Shelby County is in violation of emission standards, not just Memphis. The state has ultimate responsibility with the county having primary responsibility, NOT Memphis. All Memphis is saying is that since the whole county is responsible for air quality, then let all of Shelby County’s vehicles be tested.”
— oldtimeplayer

About “Fourteen Memphis Smoke Shops Shut Down”:
“Damn, spice and bath salts. What the hell is wrong with people, putting that dangerous crap in their bodies? The boys and I were discussing that last night over cocktails and cigars.”
— CEBorst

“Jackie and his brother, Roughhouse Fargo, are messing stuff up together again, in Parts Unknown.”
— Bridgman
