What They Said

Comments from



About "Fly on the Wall" and scanners at the airport:

"Full-body scanners? Great. That narrows my travel days down to warm days when the [air conditioning] is out at the airport." — 38103

About "One Night Stand" and the controversial musical Spring Awakening coming to the Orpheum:

"And if it sells well, you might get more like it and less like David Hasselhoff in Jesus Christ Supercar. Although Jesus Christ Supercar would be AWESOME." — fancycwabs

About "City Asks for Skatepark Input":

"I realize and agree that teens in Memphis need places to go and do things that are outlets, etc., but in light of budget issues when departments are being asked to cut back 25 percent, why is this even being considered?"


"The city can't put quality-of-life projects on hold while it fixes crime and the school system. Frankly, those two issues will never be fixed to everyone's liking. I moved to Memphis about seven years ago. This is the first time I have felt like things are really happening. It's nice to have an open-minded, big-picture mayor." — cdel

Comment of the Week:

About "Commission Acts to Safeguard Whisteblowers," regarding the recent election snafu:

"[Election Commission chairman Bill] Giannini doesn't understand what kind of retribution a whistleblower might fear? It must be wonderful, this magical world he lives in. Too bad that in the real world he's in charge of something more important than pushing the buttons in an elevator."
