About "Quit W(h)ining," by Steve Steffens, urging wine sales in retail stores:

"You can walk into a convenience store in Trumann, Arkansas, population 7,000, and buy a nice chardonnay or merlot. Yet, in Memphis, Tennessee, population 630,000, you can't do this. What's wrong with this picture?" — leftwingcracker

About "Another View: Don't Big Box Wine!" by Hank Cowles, who opposes wine sales in grocery stores:

"It blows my mind that a group of Che lovers think the Waltons need more $$$. All for more convenience and a marginally better price. We have liquor-store owners in our communities who hire people in our communities. Do we really need to give away another niche market to WalMart? Next it's MRIs, prostate exams, and pap smears?" — 38103

About "Bank Robbery: Big Bucks for Bankers and Brokers at Regions," by John Branston:

"Foxes minding the chicken coop. The corporation as a legal entity has been failing us ever since stock ownership moved from a group of wealthy investors to small stockholders too easily abused. But will we ever get reform from the governmental entities which created corporations? I doubt it." — wintermute

Comment of the Week:

About "Federal Judge Throws Out Latest 'Obama Not a Citizen' Lawsuit:

"Oh, I suspect our StormFront refugees will be providing actual, factual evidence for those 'born in Kenya' claims right about the same time they back up their 95 percent accuracy rating for Rush' or the Michelle Obama 'kill whitey' tape, or any of their other nonsense. Which is to say, never." — Tseneau
