Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and ricin-laced letters sent to government officials:

"Wow, Jesus worried about Romans hunting for Christians before there were Christians. That's the kind of forward-looking messiah I can get behind. Wonder why they ignored his advice." — CL Mullins

About "Where's Wendi? There's a Lot to Write About in Memphis.Why Is Commercial Appeal Columnist Wendi Thomas MIA?" (which provoked many unflattering comments):

"Cozy thread! It's like sitting around the campfire with Yogi, Boo-Boo, Ranger Smith, and a case of Jax." — phlo

About "Balancing Account" and a proposed property-tax increase:

"Politicians don't have a long and trusted history of rescinding taxes. The threatening long-run outcome is that wealth that belongs to local consumers and businesses will be channeled out of their pockets to the county. This diversion of wealth could hinder an economic revival if it pushes people and industries to leave the county." — JEC

About "Investing in the Bass Pro Pyramid":

"I'm in favor of the project to invigorate the Pinch district, to generate tax revenue, and to increase tourism for Memphis as it will surely do. But we've been led down this primrose path before; I just hope we aren't taking the bait, hook, line, and Shlenker."

About "Article Questions Brad Martin's Role in Pilot Probe":

"There is no greater oxymoron in the English language than 'internal investigation'." — RemotePatroller
