About "Work Begins on Beale Street Landing" by John Branston:

"Yeah, that picture just screams 'Memphis,' home of the blues and the famous funky Beale Street. Not. Good grief, how about developing something a little more in keeping with the character and architecture of this old river town? That looks like something out of The Jetsons. It's hideous." — olemiss

About "John Ford Guilty on All Counts in TennCare Case":

"I guess members of the politically powerful Ford family could comment about John Ford, 'Another one bites the dust.'" — Wayne R> Serbin

About "Scooter City":

"I hope all scooter converts will make a helmet part of their routine. It's precarious enough on the Memphis mean streets riding a bicycle. Be safe and smart out there, folks. It would suck to scrape your pretty heads off the pavement unnecessarily." — stork

Comment of the Week:

About "Turnaround Time" by Jackson Baker:

"If my criteria for electing someone to represent me were intelligence, education, phoniness, selfishness, and the ability to manipulate the electorate, I would try to raise Richard Nixon from the dead." — Bob Compton
