About "Kid Handcuffed for Not Wearing Helmet at New City Skate Park":

"We live in Memphis, one of the most dangerous cities in the United States. I'm sure someone was being shot at the same time William Faulhaber was arrested. Will that person be caught? Probably not. This article says way more about the Memphis Police Department than it does about people needing to be safer while skateboarding."

About "State Education Officials Visit Memphis, Unveil Bootstrap Process for Ailing Schools":

"Call me a pessimist, but I don't think any amount of reorganization is going to fix the problem we are dealing with, which is presented as a problem with 'the schools.' The problem is with the parents of the children attending the schools or lack thereof. The kids going to these schools are not slow or dumb, they are just made to appear that way due to their lack of proper upbringing."

Comment of the Week:
About "Tennessee Tea Party Tweets Nasty Things About Barney Frank":
"I grew up in the Cro Magnon State back in the '60s and '70s and left in 1979; I don't miss it at all!"
