What They Said

Comments from



About "Price Set for Pippin as Green Bay Seals Deal" and the final details for moving the roller coaster to Wisconsin:

"It's all too sad. The Pippin has gone the way of the Memphis Belle. It's like taking your great grandmother's jewelry to the pawn shop. Other places are more interested in our history than we are." — julie noir

"In many ways it is, but at least in this case we'll still be able to go to the new owner's house and wear it whenever we want. What else that we've lost can we say that about?" — dw231

"I, for one, am glad to see that something is being done with the fairgrounds besides letting it sit and gather weeds and rats. ... Nostalgia is a fun diversion, but one shouldn't make it a life's work." — B

About "Herenton Opposes Gay Marriage (and Pot)":
