What They Said

Commetns from



About "Letter from the Editor" and the "good old days" — before Google and the internet:

"... planting cotton in the spring. Chopping cotton in the summer. In the fall, we'd pick the cotton. In the winter, we ATE cotton. A real treat was when we had some sugar. Then we made cotton candy. I hate cotton." — zebra

About "Commercial Appeal Preparing to Roll out Pay-Wall" and charge online:

"If they provide content worth paying for, then they're set. Wait — I think I may have spotted a flaw in their plan."


Comment of the Week:

About "Measured Frankly" and how Tennessee's General Assembly is obscuring the real issues:

"Putting your head in the sand doesn't make things go away, it just makes it easier for them to sneak up on you and kick you in your ass." — sbanbury
