What They Said

About "Butts in Seats" and the actual attendance at the Liberty Bowl:

"Attendance is not an issue if you are putting a good product out there. If you constantly stink as a team, then people will avoid that activity. Win and they will come, lol. Turn the football stadium over to the university. Allow them to make the upgrades. Put the user fees on each ticket as well. Sounds simple enough."

About "Bus Riders Union, Inc. Files Civil Rights Complaint Against MATA":

"I just got back from Mexico. There was a bus every 60 seconds that would take you across town for 50 cents. I'm pretty sure they are a fleet of owner-operators, all running buses about half the size of a standard MATA. Of course it's a bit of an apples-to-oranges comparison since a much larger percentage of the population rides the bus there, but at the same time I'd like to see a similar direction taken here: more buses, smaller buses, more routes, cheaper fares, more riders." — cr33

About "Weekend Report: Harahan Bridge, Contract Bridge, Good Signs, Hamer, and Big Money," with commenters debating whether trolley tracks deter bike riders:

"This conversation is all very Portlandia."

Comments of the Week:

About "Euthanasia Rate, Adoption Rate Down at Memphis Animal Services," which also plans to add an agility course so animals can exercise:

"Agility course? While we're still killing healthy, adoptable animals by the truckload? It would be HUGE if you could just get every animal out of a cage and exercised a bit. Not all of these dogs even know how to walk on a leash. THAT'S where you start." — Kalli Potter
