What They Said



About "Fast-Food Nation" and the quest for better wages:
"Personally I find that having my food prepared by impoverished, overworked people without health-care lends a certain excitement to an otherwise pedestrian meal." — crackomerican

  • Greg Cravens

"I believe it was that old liberal Henry Ford who believed that workers should be paid enough to buy his product."— CL Mullins

About "Letter from the Editor" and intervention in Syria:
"Hey! We have got new missiles, new planes, and other new equipment in our arsenals. We are spending untold billions on war equipment. We need to see if this stuff works. So, why not experiment using Syria as a guinea pig? Hell, they don't have the equipment or the resources to attack the U.S. Let's go for it! — oldtimeplayer

"I suggest Mayor Bloomberg's approach. Let's take away all the extra large Slurpee cups from Syria as punishment ... or a time-out would be a possibility." — Steve Vanmatre

About "Twerk It!!" and the Miley Cyrus controversy:
"I truly hope that this is the column that gets Cohen FIRED from the Post. Miley Cyrus doesn't cause rape. RAPE CULTURE and RAPISTS cause rape. Madre Mia." — LeftWingCracker

Comment of the Week:
About "Hopson and Pickler on New Board and Superintendent":
"Since Memphis City Schools gave up their charter and, by default, became part of Shelby County Schools, why wasn't Superintendent John Aitken left to continue doing what just about everyone considered to be an excellent job? While I supported the merger initially, the stench of Memphis politics has now tainted the entire ugly process, and what we have left is Memphis City Schools, Pt. 2." — RemotePatroller
