What They Said

Comments from



About "The Stanford St. Jude Championship Offers Hope for the Fairway" by Frank Murtaugh:

"I hate to disagree with a sports maven like you, Frank, but the field for this event is nothing if not a disappointment, and no matter how much lipstick you put on this pig, it's still a pig." — gadfly

About "Tinker Gets Nod Again From Emily's List," Jackson Baker's article concerning support for 9th District congressional challenger Nikki Tinker from the political action committee Emily's List:

"The biggest lesson learned from the Hillary Clinton run for President, which applies to Tinker as well, is second-wave so-called feminists will vote for gender over qualifications and issues. How sad. It's everything I fought against when I was younger, and it's painful to see that reverse sexism is considered acceptable."

"If the Tinker folks don't realize that the Memphis Flyer (and most of the Memphis blogging community) is a fire ant colony for Steve Cohen, here's your warning!!! They will sting you, and then they will carry your body down to their nest to feed their young and produce more eggs." — tomguleff

About "Mayor and City Council Mull Putting School Board Out of Business" by John Branston:

"Wow. I like my power grabs naked, for sure, but this is a daring daylight coup." — stork

Comment of the Week:

About "Marsha! Marsha! Is She in Peril?" by Jackson Baker:

"Marsha Blackburn is George W. Bush in drag." — karn
