About "Old Reliable," by Chris Davis, discussing The Commercial Appeal:

"I would love to see someone explain why we need a daily paper at all. Just because there's some law from on high that all big cities must have a daily paper in order to call themselves big cities? ... Maybe the reason the paper is shrinking is because the need for it is dying." — jeff

About "Top Eight Ideas for the Pyramid," by Bianca Phillips:

"The only hope would be to get the Pyramid declared to be an adjunct piece of a Chickasaw Indian reservation and perhaps they could operate it under federal laws, rather than under the [auspices] of the state of Tennessee, but that's just pure speculation on my part." — packrat

About "The Memphis Police Residency Issue: Where Do You Stand?":

"We have enough people within our county to fill these positions but we have to start looking at ALL candidates NO matter what RACE or GENDER. We have enough of the [Mississippi] and [Arkansas] residents who work here and then take away from our county." — thewrightjr

Comment of the Week:

About "Memphis Makes Bicycling's Worst":

"The only way biking in Memphis works is sheer numbers; the bike lanes and other courtesies of the road may follow, but only then. Ben Franklin was thinking [of] cyclists when he said we must all hang together or surely hang separately, and he never tried to cross Union on a two-wheeler during rush hour." — stork
