What They Said

Comments from



About "They're Moving On: Grizzlies Top Spurs for First-Ever Playoff":

"I'm so pumped about this Grizzlies win. I had to leave the bedroom and go in the living room last night. My cheering and screaming was getting on my wife's nerves." — Okitech623

About "Disney Tweensploitation Tells Pretty Lies about the Big Night" — meaning senior proms:

"Isn't expecting a Disney movie to address real issues rather like expecting a politician to find real solutions?" — jeff

About "The Real Class War" and the gulf between the super-rich and regular folks:

"I just would like someone to explain why a person who runs a hedge fund and makes $200 million or a person who makes 98 percent of their income from capital gains should be taxed at a lower rate than someone who makes $100K a year. Please 'splain that one." — packrat

About "The Madison Avenue Bike Lanes":

"In Copenhagen, Denmark, in the '60s(!), one initially very controversial bike path project had small businesses very worried about fewer car parking spaces ... it became very clear that it only promoted business in that area and it is a shining example!" — City of Bicycles

Comment of the Week:

About "Beale Street Landing Is Looking Good" and a hilarious photo of the project covered with water:

"I'm so excited about the $12.4 million restaurant addition. I heard the taco basket special will be delicious, and only $89.95!!! This project is so under water, its not funny! And I'm not talking about the H2O!" — Mule Kick
