What They Said

From "Truck Stop Restaurateurs Win Approval From Board of Adjustment":

"While I definitely still have concerns re: parking for this, I'm hopeful they'll figure it out. I also hope some people around Memphis would not continue to get so freaked out by the concept of shipping container architecture. It's been around for quite a while now. It's versatile and truly should not be the most concerning thing about the project." — saispas

From "Haslam, Ramsey State Positions on Meth, Medicaid, Vouchers, Guns, and More," an article about Haslam's conservative views:

"So from what hillbilly law school did that slack-jawed yokel Ron Ramsey graduate? The Blountville Moose Lodge?" — Robert Ritchie

From "Rocket Launcher: The Grizzlies can use the weekend wins over Houston to launch into a tough week":

"I feel better about the FOGAFINI right now than I would have in the last few years. The one positive about all the injuries that the Grizzlies sustained in the first half of the season is that it gave a chance to really develop a deep bench. They've got 11-12 (once Tony comes back) players that can really play. Given that, I think they can tap into that bench more as the 4-game stretch starts to wear them down and potentially come out winning all 4 games." — Trae Cadenhead

From "IV Angles for Super Bowl XLVIII," Frank Murtaugh's analysis of the angles for Super Bowl stories:

"For a liberal rag, I would've thought that the fact that these two teams represent the two states that have made the most progress towards full legalization of marijuana would've been one of the key points. I saw that the other day and thought it was interesting. Want your state's team to make it to the Big Game? Legalize marijuana." — GroveReb84
