What They Said

About “Still Standing” and the upcoming Memphis magazine profile on Willie Herenton:

“He’s bombastic, vain yet secretly insecure, refers to himself in the third person, and seems to enjoy nothing more than playing head games with people. He’ll make a perfect talk radio host.” — tomguleff

About “Fly on the Wall” and the mugshot of a woman sporting a “unique two-tone hairdo.”

“I read somewhere that Sophia used to work in Hollywood as a stand-in. Her last job was on the set of  ere’s Something About Mary.” — 38103

About “Looking at Ernest Withers” and deciphering the news that he was an FBI informant:

Not everything about informing is necessarily bad. EX: informing on the militant Invaders who sought to usurp King’s non-violent movement is not, in my bad, bad at all. His motivations are what we cannot know and allowances must be made for his motives.” — Pogo

About “The Rant” and the growing Tea Party movement:

“If Bush ‘dug us’ into a hole, how can Obama ‘dig us’ out of a hole? Obama should fill up the hole, instead of digging faster and deeper.” — Phillip

Comment of the Week:

About “Payback” and the infighting within the new County Commission:

“‘He told me he’d vote for me’ sounds like a high school election for Class Favorite.” — mayfield 10
