About "Memphis Heritage Plans Boycott" and a Nashville businessman's offer to buy and save the Nineteenth Century Club:
"Beware of Greeks bearing gifts and Nashvittles offering to reach out and 'help' us Memphians. They want nothing but the best for us, starting with Shelby County sliding into the Mississippi River. I would rather see the building used as a Home for Unwed Fathers or as a shelter for recovering Catholics rather than anything having to do with Nashville. ... If you moved the Pink Palace to anywhere in Davidson County and said I could live there with free utilities and upkeep, I'd rather live in a rented room in Memphis." — martin.thompson.587268

About "Russell George, owner of Earnestine & Hazel's, Found Dead":
"I moved to Memphis as a refugee from NOLA post-Katrina September 2005 and discovered Russell and E & H. Russell and his staff made me feel at home in Memphis. ... I am truly sorry for Russell, his family, Karen, and all of his staff and friends. God bless, you are all in my prayers, and may he rest in peace. Love you back, Beth." — Beth

About "Another Ford in the House?" and Kemba Ford running for the District 91 House seat:
"Do not send a representative to Nashville to join the other Democrat marijuana propagandists in the legislature. No one in the state legislature will stand up for even medical marijuana. Why should the citizens of the 91st District continue to suffer through marijuana prohibition and petty arrests of weightless amounts of marijuana? The power is in the people; DO NOT VOTE FOR MORE OF THE SAME. Get out there and vote for a candidate with the courage to end marijuana prohibition!" — CR Liberty

Comment of the Week:
About "Another SNAFU at Beale Street Landing" and the American Queen's plans to dock at Mud Island rather than the landing:
"Let me get this straight: Memphis has spent $40 million on a boat dock that doesn't work and a restaurant nobody wants to run?" — justwondering
