What They Said

Comments from



About "Trust, But Verify" and the number of Memphians who think the latest election was "stolen":

"Memphis culture is very ill, and until the citizens are willing to accept the cure, the patient is going to continue to decline in health. There is absolutely no conspiracy, just incredible poor management by people who are operating on the edge of the Peter Principle." — sojurboy

About "A New Beginning" and six suggestions for taking U of M football to the next level:

"Point #1 says it's essential for the Tigers to get in a BCS conference. Point #3 says stop playing SEC teams because they can't beat them. Does not compute. Memphis football barely competes in C-USA. Why would any BCS conference want Memphis football?" — squeeznoutsparks

About "A Tale of Two Cities: The Post-Election Rift Widens":

"Whatever happened to A C's campaign slogan 'One Memphis'? I haven't heard it in a while. P.S. — Consolidation was dead when both mayor candidates opposed it. Now it is getting buried."

Doubting Thomas

"No one stole the election! The losers lost. The tightest race was a county school board race, and you don't hear this kind of mischief from the loser there; he lost. Pick up and ready yourselves for the next election. Some of you may still have a chance to be a winning candidate in the future, but I believe your chances of that diminish with each day you continue this distructive path."


Comment of the Week:

About "Is the U.S. Building Mosques Abroad?":

"All this is a smoke screen to cover the fact that Obama wants to kill my granny. Don't kill granny!"
