What They Said

Comments from



About "Cruising on the Shelby Farms Greenline":

"So the bikes weigh 100 lbs ... let's ban all people that weigh over 200 lbs, what if they were to wreck with someone? Let's also ban all wildlife because they can get in the way of pedestrians and cyclists and cause injury. Actually, we also need to drain the lakes at Shelby Farms because there will be accidents waiting to happen."


About the popularity of the new Shelby Farms Greenline:

"I hate that the Greenline is in such a convenient place where so many people can enjoy it. I wish it was in Tipton County or points beyond so it would be away from the traffic and all those annoying people." — packrat

About "Write Right" and a literacy program for girls in the Beltline community:

"Thanks, Memphis Flyer!! Literacy is the means to success for marginalized girls and women in Memphis!" — emmac

About "Bianca Knows Best ... and Helps a Facebooker Face Reality":

"Seriously? Someone is asking for Facebook advice? This must be a sign of the apocalypse."


About "The Rant" and "sanitizing" Confederate history:

"The only good thing about neo-Confederate buffoonery is that the only people who are really into it under the age of 50 are weird, socially inept dudes with poor hygiene and creepy pubescent mustaches. It'll die away soon enough." — wvfii
