The REST of the story

It is that time of day.

I remember how Ms. Freeler at Boyd elementary had us (3rd grade class)listen to Paul Harvey every day at about lunch time. I think it was broadcast on WSLI. Didn't understand everything he was talking about. Didn't realize what a treasure he was. But, Ms. Freeler made him a part of my young life and it became a habit from thereon-after.

Thanks for the Paul Harvey revisit today, KF.

Bullshit. The man never freed anybody! The era's biggest racist. What a corny, hokey, made up bunch of slop. In the words of his brother in law, "The greatest scoundrel unhung".

And you posted this bullshit on the day the state celebrates the birth of Robert E. Lee.

Mrs. Frieler was also my third grade teacher at Boyd in 1961/62. I had grown up listening to Paul Harvey at home. At lunch time all was quiet while he was on the air. I continued to listen to him as long as he was on the air. What a great communicator he was.

Tony Yarber, Stokes, Ben Allen, Enoch Sanders, Donner Ladd, Robert Graham and the rest . . . throw a fit when Paul Harvey's wisdom is resurrected.

Paul Harvey ' a racist and a scoundrel?!? Who knew?

I saw him broadcast one afternoon on Michigan Ave. He sat in a booth facing the sidewalk so fans could watch him broadcast.

This is Kingfish's way of getting back at Stokes for not inviting him to be in the parade.


PS: It's not about war. It's about history. Learn a little of it.

Only some dumb rednecks could F up Paul Harvey.

those who continue the myth's of the noble Lost Cause are holding a rally today, save the state flag. The worse offense of their false history is that Secession was not about free labor, slavery. join me in being proud first Union troops to enter Richmond were colored fighting men. The ex confederates caused the issues of 1865 to continue with terrorism, a new state 'Jim Crow' constitution and our Flag of 1891. Am I to thanks confederate lovers for making freedom for all a 150 year long issue, giving rise to so much of what ails our country? Not today.

What a long reach Mrs. Frieler had! She was my 3rd grade teacher at Boyd in 1959-1960 and I remember listening to Paul Harvey as well. Great teachers at Boyd! Remember Mrs. Lemerson in 4th grade reading a chapter a day after recess from Swiss Family Robinson. Great education and great memories.

I used to listen to Paul all of the time. The last time I listened to him he told a story about a man, can't even remember his name, that was farming, out plowing a field, when he decided to quit. He slammed his plow into the trunk of a tree growing beside the field. According to Paul you could still see the plow way up high in the branches of the tree.
Anyone who has ever built a fence and used a tree for a post would know it was bullshit. That was my last time listening to him.

I grew up on Paul Harvey as well, but have to confess he lost credibility to me when he announced during the Jackson 1979 Easter flood that the damn at the RBR had broken, further fueling the hysteria already gripping the city. Never heard him retract that error either.

So it's literal. You can't fathom how such descriptions might have been shared.

"Speaks" well to know we have some critical thinkers who developed without his influence.

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!!!
