From "Shelby County Prosecutor Censured by Tennessee Supreme Court," about the censure of Assistant District Attorney Thomas Henderson:

"Oh come on people, the man has suffered enough. After all, the state Supreme Court said, 'You've been a very naughty boy!' and spanked him on the bottom. For the DA to take action too would just be piling on. I'm quite sure he will never do it again, even if it means setting free some scumbag he's sure did it despite all the evidence to the contrary."— Jeff

From "Wrongful Death Lawsuits Filed Against City of Memphis, MPD," which mentioned a suit filed over the killing of animal hoarder Donald Moore:

"I believe we have some MPD cowboys who were on edge and P.O.'d about the killing of the female officer shortly before this incident, who went off on Moore. Bear in mind, the log of the episode is coming from the two who killed Moore. He can't give his version. The entire episode is off key. Why not knock on the door and ring the doorbell. Why bust into the man's house???" —JuliusJones

About Edward Valibus' parody piece on Elvis 2.0, "The King of Rock and Roll, Hip-Hop, and Alternative Electronica":

"Love Elvis 2.0, so much more accessible and relatable to every human being. Do you hear that? It's the sound of the whole world bringing all its tourism dollars to Whitehaven/Memphis RIGHT NOW!"
