What They Said

Comments from



From "Local Man Driven to the Brink of Insanity Trying to Impress Out-of-Town Parents with Memphis BBQ," which led the commenters into a discussion on the hip factor of certain local barbecue joints:

"If Leonard's was still at Bellevue and McLemore, you'd have to scrape hipsters off the soles of your shoes to get at BBQ (old family recipe)." — CL Mullins

From "Comcast Announces Data Cap in Memphis" and the internet provider's plan to charge fees to customers who use more than 300GB of data per month:

"If you have a family of three or more who tend to use services like Netflix, console gaming, etc., you'll hit this cap pretty quickly. Mainly, they use this cap to recoup money lost from people who are the cord cutters. If you tend to get your TV or movies from an online source and you have kids who do the same, you'll pay extra each month." — David

From "Doing It Up Brown" and the roast of former Mayor Willie Herenton:

"I think, overall, Herenton's term in office was good for the city. Towards the end of his campaign, he just got tired of playing the political game and said and did what he wanted. My favorite Herenton TV moment was when he was being interviewed by Cameron Harper. Herenton was trying to walk off and Harper grabbed him around his elbow to stop him. Herenton says something to the effect of, 'Don't touch me. You are gonna get knocked out.' He was definitely his own man." — Memphistenguy


"Wednesdays are my favorite days because that's when you can read the new issue of @MemphisFlyer on your lunch hour." — meghugs @meghugs

"I can say this now that I'm unaffiliated with the 'enemy': reading the @MemphisFlyer's website makes me laugh every day." — Holly Whitfield @hollyrwhit
