What They Said

Comments from



About "NYT's Ode to Midtown Memphis":

"Memphis is about to blow up. You heard it here first. And it is going to be a good ride. At least until my rent doubles and I am forced into a tent city under the South Main Bus Terminal awning."


About "No Fooling," Tom Guleff's candidacy for Shelby County mayor:

"If there weren't such a scarcity of quality people like Tom Guleff AND Steve Cohen, then maybe there wouldn't have to be any career politicians. Lord knows he could make mountains of money in private practice if he wanted to. But the truth is, if Cohen tried to get out of public service, there are a number of people who would hunt him down and drag him, kicking and screaming if necessary, back in." — autoegocrat

About "Getting a Quorum," which references Memphis City Beautiful's 35-member board:

"35 people? What exactly do they do? It seems to me that their time would be better served picking up litter. I'd love to be on the MATA board, but since I am not a reverend, minister, or relative of some politician, I don't think I'm qualified for an appointment." — mad merc

About "Refuge in the Blues," a story on this year's International Blues Challenge:

"The current blues scene is top-heavy with blues re-enactors, and the fans are conditioned to expect a certain consistency. Some of the [International Blues Challenge] judges are great people, but the acts that win year after year trend toward the clichéd."


Comment of the Week:

About "MCS, MPD Pledge to Increase School Safety":

"Got one thing to say about boyz in school packin' heat: Pants onna ground, pants onna ground, lookin' like a fool wit' yo pants onna ground! BTW, very well-structured article; you can tell whoever wrote it has some serious natural writing talent." — kernel kouch
