About "A Place to Call Home," by Bianca Phillips:
"Good on you, Bianca! It is disgraceful for the Mayor to be lining his own pockets while buildings stand empty and Memphis has no plan for the homeless population — besides harassing them, that is." — denise parkinson
About "Lutrell Now Weary of Running for 'Weak-Mayor' Job," by Jackson Baker:
"The 'half-white' paradigm is straight out of Chick publications in the dying days of the Dixiecrats. It was part of the campaign against miscegenation to imply that any children of a mixed marriage would be 'zebras,' neither black nor white." — tseneau
About the hiring of Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins in "Back to the Future," by Chris Herrington:
"I am among those that shrugged when his hiring was announced. Now, I am starting to be a bit more optimistic. Can you imagine the Tigers without the 'dribble drive'? You go with what you have and don't spend a lot of time trying to turn young, fast, athletic players into Bird, Ainge, McHale, and Parish." — 38103
