About "Poll Shows Tennesseans Want Wine in Liquor Stores":
"PLEASE! Think of the poor children in Arkansas who have to come to TN for higher-end grocery stores. Make it easier for us to get good wine too!" — Hannah

About "A Short History of the Jefferson Davis Statue in Confederate Park":
"Personally, I don't care about the parks or the symbols. If it's necessary to remove them, remove them. This whole controversy is way overblown if you ask me, but if that's what the city wants, let them do it. The sooner we get to the point where we can not harbor ill will toward groups of people because of their ancestors, the better we are." — GroveReb84

About "License to Bark" and pet licensing requirements:
"The only purpose of this is to generate revenue for the Omaha-based company trying to sell it to the city. If the city really wants to do this, they already have the administration in place to handle it. There's absolutely no reason to pay an outside company to come in and create a redundant licensing system. Which makes it almost inevitable that it will pass. Nothing sets a councilman's heart aflutter like the prospect of redundant administration." — jeff

About "A Stitch in Time: State Rep. Curry Todd Jailed":
"Why don't we rename a city park for him?" — Todd's Soo Cute!!!

Comment of the Week:
About “Confederate Parks: It’s Done But It’s Not Over”: “I wonder if renaming the Titanic became the focus of any lively debates among its passengers as it went down. Oh, the huge manatee!”
