About "Where the Jobs Are," by John Branston:

"The FedEx layoffs were a reality check and showed just how fragile the Memphis economy has become. I am so grateful to Fred Smith for speaking out and saying what I have long thought: that until Memphis offers safety and security, NOTHING else matters. He is a true leader. Will Memphis bust without ever booming? From the way things are going down, it appears so, unless true leaders step up and take the reins of leading this tired horse of a city." — JM

About "Pastner Addresses Boosters":

"Oh God. Building foundations from the grassroots translates to 'get ready to be losers for a long time.'" — rantboy

About "Herenton vs. Cohen: Maybe There's Logic to It," by Jackson Baker:

"After contemplating a life in the private sector, Mayor Herenton realized he probably couldn't get an honest job washing cars, so it's off to Washington, where catfish are jumping and the livin's easy." — jeff

About "Musical Chairs on the Election Commission," by Jackson Baker:

"That's fine, as long as we padlock Elmwood Cemetery during early voting and election day." — tomguleff

Comment of the Week:

About "All Oldies All the Time," by John Branston:

"In politics, the three most important facts about 'the young' are: 1) They do what's cool. 2) They do what they're told. 3) They do what they're told is cool." — fxn2mix
