What They Said

Comments from



About "Greater Memphis Gets Green — Finally" and the completion of two long-awaited phases of the greenway:

"Maybe we'll finally bridge our cultural divide when bikers and joggers from Gtown and Midtown mix with the rednecks of Nutbush in the bottoms of North Memphis." — sbanbury

About "Mad as Hell: Not for All the Tea in Tennessee ..." and Sarah Palin's appearance in Nashville:

"This will likely be remembered as the beginning of the end of the Tbuggers. They are already starting to turn on one another due to their acute paranoia and victimhood. What makes me laugh is the overwhelming whiteness of their kind, and for white people to feel disenfranchised and victimized in the United States is hilarious." — dh1953

About "Easy Come, Easy Go; My Easy Way Is Gone" and the closing of the Easy Way on Cleveland:

"I'm sorry to see the place close, too. But let's face it: Easy Way is really nothing more than a glorified roadside fruit/vegetable stand. It amazes me the place(s) have survived for this long."


About "Six Reasons to Consolidate":

"If Fred Smith (insert any superstar of the business world here) was mayor of Memphis I think consolidation would work. On paper it is a great idea. But the people who live out in the county have no reason to believe anything other than: 1) Taxes for them will go up, and 2) Services will stay the same. How are you going to sell that kind of deal?" — 38103

Comment of the Week:

About "I Am Back, Says Herenton at Kickoff, Forecasting a Congressional Win":

Herenton elected to Congress would be a catastrophe for the ages. Almost as dangerous as Rip Torn behind the wheel of a Prius." — Phlo
