In case you missed it....

Here is Mayor Tony Yarber's press conference on the water problems.

At 16:00 he goes off the rails and starts blaming everyone but the denizens of Jackson and their destruction of the tax base. Then Stamps does a commercial for buying real estate in Madison and Rankin county.

It isn't even funny anymore. More sad than anything else.

A few thoughts:

First, WHAT THE HELL are Yarber and Stamps wearing? Want to be taken seriously? PLEASE DRESS LIKE A LEADERS. These guys look like a failed experiment at Jos. A. Banks. Stokes dresses better then these guys!

Second, Yarber needs to take a public speaking class. He must have said "Uh" over 100 times. He needs to stop using crutches in his language. It makes him look unsure of his ideas and statements. Uhhhhh...

Finally, I find it interesting that both Yarber and Stamps brought up race and politics in this communication. Neither have a place in this issue. Stamps tried to play Michigan against Mississippi like the state government was going to play along with his wishes and write a check for Jackson's total lack of control and responsibility for this problem. I find it amusing that Jackson leaders want to be the City with Soul when it comes to making decisions, but desires state a and federal funding when they fail. You can't have it both ways. In the past five years has the city of Jackson help a press conference that didn't bring up race? That would be refreshing.

Talk about a disappointment. Was somewhat encouraged a few years ago when he was elected - certainly seemed a better prospect than the others in the race. But as it turns out he is so over his head, hired incompetent folks to surround himself with in City Hall, can't manage the bureaucracy, no plan to solve any problem - and appears to have completely sold out to a few of the 'minority business folks' that intend to suck whatever they can out of the meager city resources.

Don't know when the majority of the voters in Jackson will realize that we need to elect someone that can truly run the city - no matter the race, background, faction, or whatever the person comes from. I understand - it is politics and all of those go into who gets elected. But maybe the leadership of the various factions will put forth a candidate that can actually get elected that is honest and competent. I'm ready for 2017 to see if that could possibly happen before we go absolutely to hell.

Just how many times can "um" or "ah" be used in a press briefing?

Put the Jacktown stories on the back burner for awhile. Get back in the groove with Madison County stuff where at least we have a chance to get the tractor out of the ditch.

Geof Pender of C-L has been kicking some politicians asses over their fuzzy management of campaign funds. And, the politicians have scattered in all directions, hopeful as usual that they can deflect the public's attention to some bullshit political issue that all the blind mice followers will fall for.

The dripping irony of yet another comment from JJ's hopeless malcontent.

No dripping irony (whatever the hell that means). Just the facts, ma'am. Just the facts.

Yeah, the presser was a stinker but for for suburbanites to jump in and get mad online is a continuation of the farce that exists among JJ's commenters.

He's also real bad at clause-utilization. "...the farce that exists".....for example.

No one expects anything from Jackson except more incompetence. The people elect the leaders. Look at the people left in Jackson. The majority don't work and are a drain on society. They all have their hand out and elect politicians with their hand out.
Whites are not allowed unless they are giving away something.
People of Jackson, you broke it, it is yours.

8:30 and 8:45 are proving 7:52's point.

The Mayor's outfit reminds me of the cute little monster in Jurassic Park - the one with the neck-ruff:

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.

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.
