About "Westboro Baptist Church Takes on the NBA, Ignores Elvis":

"Dead men can't dribble." — Dik Ponk

About "Game 1: Spurs 105, Grizzlies 83 — When 0-1 Looks Steeper Than It Did Before":

"The most telling thing that I saw on my television screen were the 'wtf? looks' that all the other four starters gave Z-Bo every time he screwed up, after it became obvious his bad start was becoming more than just a bad start." — Tennessee Waltzer

About "John Willingham, Barbecue Maven and All-Around Achiever, Dies at 80":

"I will always remember meeting John in 1993 at Memphis In May. And I will forever carry his words of advice in my heart and head, 'It ain't braggin' if you can do it!' Thanks, John, for being such a great man and character. Those of us in the barbecue community will do some cooking in your honor. Memphis, you have truly lost a GREAT MAN!"


About "The Rant" and New Jersey governor Chris Christie:

"He could never come to Memphis. The slow-smoked barbecue, fried chicken, and Southern food would kill him dead." — Senor

About "Animal Advocacy Group Plans Protest Against Memphis Animal Services":

"The thing that gets me is when they continue to say that there are so many dogs that there will be mistakes. If you follow every rule every time, there would be no room for error."

Comment of the Week:

About "Beale's Club 152: 'We'll Take Care of It,' Says Kevin Kane":

"Do you suppose that the timing of this closure, during MIM, a high tourist and media spotlight time, not to mention the attention brought by the Griz, was coincidental? If the idea was to show Memphis getting tough on crime I'm not sure striking a high-profile target on Beale Street at this time served the purpose."
