What They Said

Comments from



About "Eyesores," by Michael Finger:

"I'm surprised that you didn't pick the downtown library instead of the 3rd Street post office. It's hard to believe that Memphis used to be voted the 'Nation's Cleanest City.' ... Now, it is just one eyesore after another. It would be easier to list what ISN'T an eyesore than to list the top 10 eyesores." — cranky_barstard

About "Jeremiah Wright (Yes, That Jeremiah Wright) Defines MLK's Mission," by Jackson Baker:

"Militarism and capitalism made this country one of the greatest nations on earth. We are clearly on a road to be 'dumbed down' to the mediocrity of the global masses while China and Russia rush to surpass us on all fronts. We have seen our greatest days come and go ... as our socialist leaders lead the sheep to slaughter." — Valgarth

About "Kentucky and Calipari: A Dissent from Bluegrass Country":

"I don't begrudge Cal for chasing the dough, but for him to take the recruits and players with him — that's low, man. Our team PAID for him to fly all over America getting players for U of M — not friggin Kentucky!! If he leaves, fine. Sorry to see him go. If he leaves and takes the recruits, assistant coaches, and present players — he should be tarred, feathered, and SUED!!!!!!!!!!!!" — rantboy

Comment of the Week:

About "Calipari: I Was Just Kidding About the Kentucky Job" (a Flyer April Fools story):

"OK, either he never talked to the Memphis Flyer or the writer exploded his comments to make [them] sound good, not knowing the paper would look like a fool later." — nokiaec11
