How long will it be before we start hearing the bitching here that these cancellations are due to the poor choices of individuals that are currently on the JMAA board? I am sure if Harkins' bill had been passed and the Governor could appoint the board members, they would have made sure that these flights would not have been cancelled - for these airlines or for all the new ones that would be serving Jxn.

Suck it up, 4:47. You just need attention. Nobody would suggest such as you just posted. Please put that pointy hat back on your head and resume your position on the stool. Thanks.

A new board would control the weather through the hubs back East, and also require carriers to base "all-weather" aircraft here at the Stokes Lumumba Jackson Medgar Wiley Coyote Evers International Airport - it's in the bill!

If Harkins' bill were already signed into law it would be sunny and 70 with NO HUMIDITY EVER!!! 4:47 you are Kennuff if Kenuff could type.

Councilman Kennuffff Stokes is responsible for the flight cancellations. It is all part of the master plan to decrease flight patterns over ward 3, which could be endangering the elderly and chillen playing in da streets. This was all orchestrated with the help of his close friends at the Department of Justice.

Kennuff had a press conference and he suggested throwing rocks, bricks and bottles at air carriers who cancel flights or reduce service because it's racist not to fly into a an airport named after a civil rights figure.

10:03 Unless the state buys Southwest a 737-800, they aren't coming back.

Once we get all republicans appointed to the airport board, the airport will be as solvent as the state budget. and PERS. and MAEP. and SLRP

7:54 - correct. But 'they' don't want to deal with truth - Southwest isn't serving here any longer just as they aren't serving several other airports and it has nothing to do with 'the board'. I think it might take even more than one 737-800, but that would be a good starting point.

Northwest Florida Beaches airport subsidizes Southwest. We could do the same. It'd be a lot cheaper than beef plants or Kiors. In fact we should recommend that the Mississippi Development Authority subsidize them to bring more business to the Cultural Attraction/shopping centers Pearl and Ridgeland. Now there's an idea!

Harkins said he took his family to San Diego. The troll who keeps saying Las Vegas is flat out lying and knows it.

San Diego - Vegas ....doesn't matter. Harkins claiming he is making this move only because he all of a sudden learned that it is expensive to fly is flat out lying and he knows it.

There is more to this move than flight costs - cause the takeover won't do a damn thing about ticket prices or services. This is about bond work, fees, and development property. Follow the money, and its not the money being spent on Orbitz.

6;24 - the two law firms hired by the Board make $20,000 per meeting.

Will the new Board hire Lord Snow for only $18,000 per?

Always follow the money. Always.

10:31 - don't know what BS would be charging, but would not be surprised if they don't move in the territory left vacant by Bennie's attorney. But that would still be a minor amount of the money to follow - check who has multiple development projects on Lakeland that would like to get hold of this land. And look at who would be picking up bond work he has gotten shut out of from Hizzoner Yarbor.

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
