What They Said 

MemphisFlyer.com

From "Not Okay, Cupid," Kerry Crawford's column about her problems with online dating in which she complained of too many pictures of dudes holding fish: "Yes, 90 percent of men in Memphis are rednecks with camo hats. Is this surprising? You live in the south. Also, don't begrudge someone because they have an outdoor related hobby. Boats are fun. Fishing is relaxing. Fishing is better than sitting around watching Netflix night after night." — bill.automata

From "School's Out?" about the proposal to close Westhaven Elementary because the building is in bad shape:

"I think this effort to close a school that is doing so well is highly questionable at best. Especially given that there are so many needy children in that neighborhood. As I understand things, the reasons being given to close the school would apply to almost everything built before 1990." — QueerAnn

From "Ethics Panel Votes to Dismiss Charges Against Chism," about conflict-of-interest charges against County Commissioner Sidney Chism for voting for appropriations benefiting the Horn Lake Road Day Care Center, which he owns:

"Chism did not benefit from his vote. Poor children did. Whether Chism owned the facility or not, whoever owned it would have mostly got the same benefit for the kids. This is a perfect example of a person being persecuted for who he is rather than what he has actually done. Since he was exonerated, his legal bills should be picked up by the government, or, better yet, Roland should be made to pay them." — oldtimeplayer

Tweets

WMC-TV reporter Jason Miles tweeted this in response to our Fly in the Wall pic of Jason's face on a birthday cake:

"I should be on the payroll by now @MemphisFlyer." — Jason Miles @JMilesWMC

From a post about a Memphis Press-Scimiter box that mysteriously showed up outside the Flyer office:

"I know a fella who 'took' a USA Today paper machine from outside of a grocery store at Austin Peay and Yale Road to display his fish bowl on ... My Dad told me (I mean him) that it better make its way back to where it belonged ..."
