What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

From "Midtown Man Thinks Trader Joe's Imminent," a parody piece about a man campaigning for a Memphis Trader Joe's:

"Honestly, I think if Midtown ever got a Trader Joe's, it would be a disaster. What would people have left to complain about? It would be like somebody actually capturing a Bigfoot and finding out it's just a hairy bear that walks upright more often than regular bears."

Jeff

From "Why Is Memphis Happier Than Nashville? Meet the Nashville Grizzlies" and a naked shot of Nashville's inclusive male rugby team contrasted with shots of the Memphis Griz in uniforms:

"I like the Nashville Grizzlies picture better. You expect me to growl over a picture of fully clothed basketball players? The modern basketball uniform isn't flattering to any male anywhere. Let's go back to the '70s."

Brunetto Latini

From "Memphis Voters Reject Pre-K Sales-Tax Increase":

"Good. We are taxed to death here already with little except corruption, decay, and waste to show for it. But just watch now: They will now increase property taxes to get what they want. And the endless cycle of more productive taxpaying people fleeing this dump of a city will continue."

From a post about a typo in The Commercial Appeal, which called the Grizzlies a "makeshit team":

"It's true ... They gotta try to makeshit happen." — Jeramy Allen Buckner

"Will probably end up being read on the Letterman show!"
