Is Pickering EVER going to investigate this crap?

I am in the wrong business. What utter crap.

I'm with the above comment, when is Hinds BOS going to be investigated for this kind of BS?

This is really disturbing; for $66K? They basically bought a wikipedia page about Hinds County.

Who sets up this blog administrator's appearances on Tuesday radio (or is it Wednesday)? Why can't Pickering be invited to appear on the program? Failing that, why can't the blog administrator formally contact Pickering for an opinion post on this site?

Did anyone notice that the 2 books they referenced were 35 & 22 years old? Hardly up to date info. They must have checked them out from the Hinds Co. Library.

Pickering gave Madison BOS a clean bill of health. What's to make us think he'd do any different for these clowns?

Man, that is upsetting. We just can't keep doing this.

Surely 4:36 doesn't equate Madison Co. BOS with Hinds BOS. If he does, how about some backup,

Where is Pickering?

Where is Hood?

Where is Schuler Smith?

Where is the CL?

Where is MBJ?

Where is the FBI?

And why is KF the only person in the room asking questions?

Noting wron with this.

From page 3:

"The benefits of a PID are:

1.) The project costs' can be ultimately borne by the entities that benefit from its use- residential, commercial, retail etc.

2.) Can server as a conduit to initially finance project."

Math class boys and girls. If I sell an 11 page report to someone for $66,000 dollars, what is the per page price? You got it boys and girls, $6,000 per page. Hell, their bill was 1 page longer than the damn report. As a tax payer, I am now officially sick to my stomach.

And THEY don't give a SHIT what you are any other tax producing honkie says.

More importantly than many of the above criticisms (all of which are good) - these folks are not in the business of providing economic analysis; they are "financial advisors" (questionable at that) on bond issues. They are not qualified in any way to do the job they were "hired" to do.

Never written one of these and don't know how. I have however built quite a few business plans with the same type of data.

First part boiler plate that would reflect the defination of any road that that is simular to this project

Much of the rest makes statements but has nothing in the way of information to make a decision.

Latter part is simply cut and paste from sites like city-data.com and others, something a high school kid could do.

Yes. we are in the wrong business if they rec'd that much money for this report.

There is some information at the bottom of page 2 of the first document that should probably be redacted.

You are free 7:58 PM to transfer money into Malachi's account. Whore's aren't very picky about their johns.

Next; A study to show the relationship between criminals and their victims in Jackson. Rumor on the street is you're safe visiting Jackson as long as you don't know any shooters. Wonder if this Greenwood woman knew her assailant?

Here's my report, where do I turn it in?

"I will try to answer the board's questions in a manner that appears scholarly but may be catastrophically wrong"
"http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/28/28049lk.html"

$66,000.00 please.

When are you doing a story on the JSU "Superdome"???

And now they have an open ended, no bid contract to audit the Hinds Co. budget and help fix the E911 shortfall. Please make it stop, my head hurts.

Armed robbery in Maywood Mart today. That is the shithole Jackson district that keeps electing police impersonator Robert Graham.

Will this Byrum-Clinton corridor have an off ramp to the domed stadium and surrounding world-class eateries and retail shops? I'm excited.

A domed facility @ JSU has exponentially more chances for success than an arena in downtown Jackustan.

Yes....will be named the Kenny Stokes Yo Mama Yo Mama All-You-Can-Eat Off Ramp.

Of necessity, this will be a very large exit sign.

And a multi-lane exit ramp to accomodate the wide load.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
