About "Not So Uniform" and the problems that school uniforms can cause for students who can't afford them:
"If schools require a uniform, they should have to buy it for the students. But hey, maybe they could sell sponsorships for the uniforms, you know, like NASCAR drivers wear: 'The Red Bull AutoZone students of Nextel Melrose High made great academic strides this semester. We're looking forward to a great season for the Mountain Dew Golden Wildcats.'" — jeff

About "The Rant" and Mitt Romney's chances:
"So who's going to the big Romney campaign fund-raiser tonight? Rumor has it that Paul Ryan will demonstrate his workout routine at the podium, and Mitt will make a surprise appearance handing out P90X DVDs in the lobby." — phlo

About "Disputed Calls" and a photograph of county commissioners Steve Mulroy and Melvin Burgess with GOP vice presidential contender Paul Ryan:
"Pro-life liberal Steve Mulroy in a photograph with pro-life Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. Here is the proof, Planned Parenthood. Mulroy sold out the women of Memphis. No wonder the Democratic Party is in shambles in Memphis. ... Memphis Democrats are moving toward the Tennessee Republican Party." — stapletondia

Comment of the Week:
About "Payback" and a proposed wage of theft ordinance:
"The interesting thing about this 'trend' is that the average Red State voter actually supports the gutting of worker protection laws that seek to prevent/prosecute these types of actions. Go figure. Feudalism/serfdom are on the way back." — jrgolden
