About "The Rant" and the religious requirements demanded of presidential candidates:

"Who friggin' cares what the Bible says, which every Christian interprets differently anyway? Anyone who believes the Bible is literally true is literally deluded." — Packrat

About Shara Clark's "Up a Tree," concerning the Memphis Zoo's chainsawing of Overton Park trees to make way for a new exhibit:

"Is anyone really surprised? Memphis is one of the most backward cities in this country when it comes to conservation and ecological thinking. ... Once you tear down a forest you can't just rebuild it. Replacing a real habitat with a fake habitat that represents a real habitat? How insanely stupid. And how typical of Memphis." — mtnbikingchik

About "New Day at the Shelter" by Bianca Phillips, who reported that the former Albuquerque animal shelter director is coming to Memphis:

"An animal services director with shelter experience. Yay. Now if we could just get the city to hire a library services director with library experience." — B

Comment of the week

About "Council May Re-establish Animal Shelter Board":

"This is an excellent idea, except for the mayor-appointed part. How can we be sure that he won't just appoint his gardener and driver to the positions?" — Friday

About the Lester Street killings ("Police Charge Victim's Brother with Six Murders" by John Branston):

"There is an important life lesson to be learned from this incident. When your brother has already murdered someone, you should avoid arguing with him at all costs." — Mon_Kie
