From "Commercial Appeal Layoffs Show Lack of Creative Vision, Newspaper Guild President Says; May Represent a Shift in Editorial Focus":
"The CA could have Louis Farrakhan and David Duke in an op-ed and on the masthead five days a week, and still the paper would be in financial distress. But if you had large color photographs on the front page of the two nekkid in a sauna sharing a hookah pipe, you'd have to print extra editions. Newspapers are a business first." — CL Mullins

From "Memphis Workers Protest After Recent Nationwide Wage Wins," about a fast-food strike last Thursday:
"As a former restaurant manager for over 20 years, I fully support these workers to earn a living wage. I feel that any job that an employer feels is worth doing is worth paying a decent wage to do. If paying workers a decent wage puts you out of business, then you don't deserve to be in business in the first place." — J-Val

From "Quincy Pondexter diagnosed with stress fracture, 'out indefinitely,'" about how the Grizzlies guard's foot injury will affect the team:
"For the love of all that is good and decent in this world, please allow the tanking to commence. This team is done." — Iggy

From "The Rant," about why Pope Francis is dope. One commenter interjected a sentiment about another well-respected figure:
"Just heard we lost Nelson Mandela. The world should mourn our loss of one who quite literally took the slings and arrows upon himself for so many. Rest in your reward." — thecatsmeow
