About "What Will Happen to Overton Square?" by Chris Davis:

"I've been away from Memphis about five years now and coming back for a recent visit, I was saddened to see how rundown the entire Overton Square area has become. When are the folks in charge of preservation and city planning going to figure out that you should formulate plans BEFORE things deteriorate to such extremes? Overton [Square] used to be a fun, eclectic arts and entertainment area. It's amazing to see how far a city can backslide in such a short amount of years." — Jaybird

About "Q&A with Ginnifer Goodwin," by Shara Clark:

"She really is just like everybody else, well if everybody else is sweet and down to earth." — Memphismom

About "Scripps to Sell the Rocky Mountain News," by John Branston:

"Newspapers don't have fixed assets, except for the building and the presses and the trucks. Their real assets have always been the journalists, photographers, artists, salespeople, etc., who produce a product — news, information, and a vehicle for commerce — desired by a community. ... Outsource them and you've outsourced your only reason to exist." — olemiss

Comment of the Week:

About "Think You Understand the Bailout? Try This Simple Test," by John Branson:

"I scored a 32 out of 4 trillion, but only because I understand that money is nothing more than a quantum particle, subject to Hawkings Radiation when it's in my pocket or my bank account." — Jeff
