In their own words, part II

Here is the second batch of emails between Ridgeland officials and other parties regarding Costco.  290 pages of emails are posted below.  Have fun digging through them to your heart's content.

I made it about a third of the way through, but now I really feel like I need another shower this morning. It's repulsive to see the joy that these people take in lying.

I am way over 70 years old and have found that most people will lie and cheat. I've watched the property owners in Greenwood Plantation fuss about COSTCO locating on Highland Colony---everyone of them knew that property was set aside for commercial use and they bought the property in Greenwood Plantation and built fine homes. By the way, the homes were paid for by the efforts of their parents or their wives. I remember people saying Mattiace was like a tick on a dog---that's the pot calling the kettle black. Complaining about all this is like buying a house near a train track and complaining about the noise. WOW !!! WHAT A BUNCH TITTIE BABIES.

Just because nearby homeowners should possess a foreknowledge that HC was for commercial use doesn't mean proposed any use of that site should be automatically given the green light. McGee, Hart, et al are going to be deposed and it will be ugly.

Everybody living near the reservoir knows the property of PRVWSD is subject to being developed some time too. But, who knew, after decades of sitting idle, that they would suddenly decide to drop another thousand rooftops at the eastern city limits of Madison? And just because we all knew the Reservoir Authority owned the land, is it being suggested that we deserve what we get? That's crap, even coming from somebody who is 'way over 70'. Sometimes it takes a long while to get stupid.

9:57, the problem was they assumed that whatever went in that space would conform to the zoning as written, not as revised on a whim.

Interesting to see Mr. Hart suggesting that an alderman who is a church member can intercede to subvert the alcohol sales rules of the state.

We've come a long way, Baby!

Amen, 9:57.
12:55, not on a whim. Small towns have to adjust as they grow and are approached by businesses.

This is "over 70" answering 12:53. Grow up and realize that life is tough and calling people stupid is not very smart---you must be a south Jackson boy. Development land is set aside for a certain use---all I'm saying is the commercial land was there whether it is used for offices or retail---those Greenwood Plantation "Tittie Babies" would have complained no matter what type commercial development went there. Don't piss this old man off---BIG BIG MISTAKE.

Since we've got an old guy on here continuing to talk about tittie (sic), I think it's germane to ask when we'll get more jackassery around this place. It would certainly, ahem, "lift" the mood.

On one hand the oldster says "calling people stupid is not very smart" then in almost the next breath he's slinging out "Tittie Babies" again.

It's nap time for the old fart.

Dear "old man",
We're on the same side of this issue, but on behalf of all of the rest of us who support the City and its progress, could you please take a deep breath and tone down the language a little bit? Flies with honey . . .
Much appreciated.

Nothing more entertaining than reading an anonymous post from somebody well over 70 making dire warnings not to piss him off. Or else. Is this what manhood has come to in the us?

Dear Ridgeland,

Instead of all this frettig about a Cotsco, think about all the development that COULD be taking place.

Try and ask yourselves, "What can't we build on Highland Colony Parkway???"

Yours truly,

Old Fannin Road

I like the comments about Costco attracting the "budget shoppers from Jackson."

What could possibly be the meaning behind this statement?

Anonymous said...

I'm a little surprised that everyone jumped on me about my comments---70+---I certainly have read worse comments and no one said anything. I may have hurt you girls' feelings but the truth is the truth. In 15 to 20 years it won't matter, Ridgeland will be just like Jackson. Just a fact to throw out---Jackson Mall to The Metro Center to Northpark on to the Renaissance---just look at the pattern. I holler "Calf Rope" (Quit)---won't be posting any more comments.

For the record, I enjoyed the exchange between the two 70+ year olds.

I especially enjoyed one calling the other "a South Jackson boy" as a matter of insult. Fascinating.

I need to know more about my local history and start dishing out old school insults like this. I could really outhip Fondren.

Looking for ammo,

Titties, titties, titties.

One major difference......Ridgeland cops (and Madison, too)...don't play. They don't let anything slide. And when you face a judge up there it isn't a Hinds County joke judge. Bonds are high and they send people to jail.

The black middle class moving to Madison isn't doing so because they are seeking dog shit public schools and a high crime neighborhood.

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!!!
