What They Said 

From MemphisFlyer.com

From "Lipscomb Talks to Cooper-Young Residents About Fairgrounds Development" and a discussion of what businesses may locate there if redeveloped:

"The Midtown ecosystem, if it is to maintain being a center of future inner-city growth, needs to be carefully groomed. Big-box retail is by its very nature at odds with what makes Midtown attractive to creative professionals." — BP

From "Monster Owl Spotted in Memphis, Fox 13's Lauren Lee Reports," a blog post on a TV news reporter's tweet about a 20-pound owl rumored to be attacking people in East Memphis:

"A monster owl ate my baby!" — Jeff

From Letters to the Editor and a letter complaining about the Flyer's scantily clad logo for this year's Best of Memphis issue:

"'Too Much Bosom?' Not possible." — thecatsmeow

From Letters to the Editor and a letter about Obamacare:

"It is time that you right-wing Republicans realize that it is the people, in total, not your party, that determines spending priorities. This is done every two and four years; it is called federal elections. Barack Obama ran for re-election on the ACA (Obamacare) and the spending priorities that he wanted. He won by getting a majority of the votes." — oldtimeplayer

Tweets

"Go owl! TAKE BACK THE NIGHT RT @MemphisFlyer Monster Owl Spotted in Memphis, Fox 13's Lauren Lee Reports" — Amy Gregory @usagiakg

From a post on "Land Use Control Board Approves Crosstown Redevelopment":

"This is thrilling! So, so happy it isn't going to be demolished." — Lisa Marie Fairbrother
