What They Said

Comments from



About "2012-13 Tiger Basketball Schedule Released":

"Harvard and Louisville are the key matchups, I suppose." — Jim BoogerNose

About "The Early Voting Error Total Is Now Well Over 2,000":

"Stop the voting, and throw out all cast votes. Start over with the correct ballot provided to the voter. For the state and county to rely entirely on the citizen to know what damn district they were assigned to earlier this year is so bureaucratic and tone deaf it is stunning." — Joe the Citizen

About "Q&A with Paul Morris," president of the Downtown Memphis Commission:

"How about COGIC donate the [Chisca Hotel] building to the city? They let the building fall into this poor of a state. They should not make one red cent on the sale. ... I'm all for historical preservation and removing blight, but the perpetrator of the blight should, and needs to be, held accountable. That includes not making a profit, especially on the taxpayers' dime." — mad_merc

About "What They Said" and comments about the Aurora shootings:

"I'm trying to scratch my head and remember the last time a mass murder had been committed by baseball bat. Or bow and arrow. Or flame thrower. Or 'any number of mechanical devices.' I guess holding onto the 2nd Amendment for dear life and having access to the real weapons of mass destruction outweigh the countless lives lost in the pursuit of 'protection.'" — The UG

Comment of the Week:

About "Chick-fil-A and the Culture War":

It's chicken, people, and very good chicken at that. That's why I go. There aren't hidden agendas and secret messages in everything we do, read, watch, and think. This isn't George Orwell's 1984. Some people make life so much tougher than it ought to be. Those folk are generally the 'miserables,' the ones you don't want to be cornered with at a party."

— Midtown Mark
