About "We're All in This Together" and the school merger plan:

"Shelby County is so behind the rest of the country. We want excellence, but do not want to provide a place for it on the high school level. The top schools on the Newsweek list are always magnet (optional) or charter schools; the school within a school model just doesn't work. We have all kind of special programs and money for the lower-performing students; why not provide for the academically advanced?" — Monique Fisher

About Bass Pro founder "Johnny Morris and the Pyramid and Bass Pro":

"Hot damn! I've heard of inside swimming pools, but an inside swamp?"

About "Letter from the Editor" and Obama's decision to not pursue certain illegal immigrants:

"Hey. Remember when W made executive decisions and you guys lost your collective brain cell? It's ok now for the president to decide what rules to enforce and what rules to ignore?"

About "That's My Boy's Questionable Existence":

"I'm not sure why you would expect anything else. I have a theory that Adam Sandler is out to make a string of awful comedies to see just how low and bad he has to get to NOT make money on a film." — GroveReb84

About "Harahan Bridge Bike Route Gets $15 Million Grant":

"Maybe we will see some summer sunbathing on the West Memphis side at the sand bars. Perhaps a snow cone shack?"

Summer in the City
