What They Said


About "Bass Pro 2012 ... Meanwhile" and the Madison Avenue trolley, Tom Lee Park, and other things:

"I am not sure why Tom Lee Park takes so much crap. Every day I see kids playing, dogs walking, tourists taking photos, and couples courting. And it is right on the freaking river. Developers just want to get their greedy little mittens on it. A few trees and some water fountains would be great. But why would we spend money on water and trees when we could be spending it on people?" — 38103

"I say EXTEND the trolley down Madison to East Parkway. Then it will connect Cooper-Young, Tucker-Jefferson, Evergreen, Orange Mound, and Overton Park with downtown. It could also be vital in making Overton Square appealing to investors and could tie in with the recent decision by city council to make Midtown more pedestrian-friendly/urbanized."

About "Bass Pro Is a Go":

"I'm really looking forward to all the new development in the Pinch that will be attracted by all those people walking from their cars, across the parking lot into the Bass Pro. It should really revitalize downtown, much as the Mall of Memphis revitalized East Memphis." — jeff

About "Griz Reach Agreement with Rudy Gay" and Gay's proposed $82 million contract:

"Well, we certainly can't call Mike Heisley cheap anymore." — Midtown Mark

About "Prosecutors Release Video of West Memphis Cop Shootings":

"I don't know whether I'm more sad than I am angry." — autoegocrat

About "Doctors Are Using a Prenatal Steroid to Prevent Lesbians, Tomboys, and Independent Women":

"Dangerous ground for the social conservatives here. If they say it's a great idea to engage in this, they're tacitly admitting that 'gayness' may be innate. Fab-u-lous." — packrat

Comment of the Week:

About "Bass Pro Is a Go":

"What amazes me is that this story has a perfect headline and nobody used it: 'Bass Pro Takes the Pyramid ... Hook, Line and Shlenker.'"

— Mike
