About "So Who'll Be Running for Scott McCormick's Seat," where Jackson Baker ponders various possible candidates for a City Council opening:

"I really wish Desi [Franklin] would reconsider. I still have her bumper sticker on my car, and I don't want to have to go out and get another one." — KatieDidnt

About "Letter from the Editor," where Bruce VanWyngarden talks about the potential impact of "low-information voters" (or as he likes to call them, "dumbasses"):

"Kudos for McCain for seeking the dumbass vote! Whatever it takes to keep the Chavez clone from sniffing the White House. Unfortunately there is no IQ barrier for voting, hence Willie is our mayor." — clyde

"Give a few extra votes to veterans, police, teachers, anyone who has ever been elected to anything, and anyone who has performed some meritorious public service. Give everyone an extra vote when they turn 65, just for hanging in there. The dumbasses have strength in numbers. This is the only way we can outvote them every time." — autoegocrat

Comment of the Week:

About "Living Day-to-Day," a look at Memphis' undocumented immigrants, by Bianca Phillips:

"We have between 20 and 30 million Mexican criminals in this country. Odds are good that at least 20 percent of those can carry a gun. So let's send them to the Middle East. If they win, the survivors get to come back to the U.S.A. with honor and a green card." — wrjames
