Here we go again

Yet another car crashed into a building.  This time it happened at McDade's on Fortification Street.  An elderly lady drove her car through the wall.  It is not known if there were any injuries.  McDade's is open although the deli is closed.





How many times has this happened in the Jackson area recently?

KF, do you know if records of these "I thought I was hitting the brake" incidents provide the sex of the driver? Seems like in every where you report about one of these drive throughs the female pronoun is used.

Kingfish asked...."How many times has this happened in the Jackson area recently?"......
Well Kingfish, you being the reporter of news reports that are, at times, not worth reporting, or in other instances, reports that fail other sources of news reports.....I, and I am sure others would agree with me, would think that you, of all people, could provide the answer to the question that has been posed.

I think its fairly clear at this point we need legislation banning cars.

Louis LeFleur said...

The answer is "too many". Hope the "elderly lady" wasn't hurt. Otherwise, 3:30 has a point. I don't remember one of these stories where the driver was male, but I'm probably biased.

I know this will be unpopular and probably won't make the cut, but, this has to be associated with the fact that women never fart, and they drive. further speculative analysis is up to the group.

Where is the GOP? They should be saving us by arming restaurant workers with anti-car weaponry. Watson, Bryant and team are awol on the real issues.

When I was in High School I knew a lady who could no longer walk and was in a wheelchair because she was pinned between the car and the wall. I'm sure today's accident was just that, but sometimes people should not drive. Actually a taxi to the store, to the doctor, and to church is cheaper than owning a car for most folks.

It’s McDades fault said...

Perhaps if McDades had a drive through window, this could have been avoided.

It's getting more common as the distance from gas to brake decreases. It's thing. Look it up.

Apparently you've never met my wife. She farts like a pro and learned to drive in Germany, somewhat to my annoyance when I fail to signal a lane change when someone is within a mile or so behind or in front of me. I can understand your apprehension though, my Grandfather always went on about women drivers. I think it had to do with my Grandmother running the Model T into an oak tree, though. It may have given him a bad example.

Men typically die before they reach the stage of running into buildings. How many little blue-haired men do you see in church?

6:57am speaks the truth. My grandmother ran into the front of her pharmacy about 10 years after my grandfather passed away. The good news was no one was injured and she willingly gave up her license.

Hand over your damned license, Grandma! said...

Old people who stubbornly refuse to admit they are doddering menaces behind the wheel...INFURIATING! But people in general are just living too damn long, and unfit, superannuated drivers are only one of the tiresome aspects. Families bankrupted because it is hugely, ruinously expensive to warehouse the old darlings...ugh. Just shoot me at 75...

It was rumored that just before she hit the building she yelled....












"I'd hit that!"

And just how many accidents happen EVERY day when the driver is NOT old? How many more drunk driving accidents involve men instead of women? How many teens have "died before their time" due to losing control of a vehicle? How many accidents are a result of texting and driving? Or distracted driving? I fail to see where "old" and "female" are the factors we need to worry about. How about people just need to slow down and be more careful? And that applies to EVERYONE!

8:41 am In the 60s, we thought the world would be better if everyone over 40 was dead.
One day, you too will deal with getting older and you'll think you're being punished for the unkindness you displayed when young.
On this, there's a solution. I'll give up driving if you'll give up your cell phone and ear pods while driving.
Seems to me you young'uns are more of a danger than us old coots.
Deal?

And , to those likening this to guns...you have to have a license to drive. It's not a perfect system as this lady demonstrates, but it got my father off the road when his eyesight went bad and this lady won't be driving anymore. On the other hand I know a mentally challenged guy who accidentally shot his best friend in high school and he has an assault weapon which has killed two cows and three trees. He fortunately also has a trust fund and just pays off his neighbors.

8:41,

I'm 75 and can still whip your ass...then I'll shoot you if you are sure that's what you want !!!!!

Louis LeFleur said...

Is 9:42 actually Kirk Fordice back from the dead?

10:02,

This is 9:42 here...I get so tired of people trying to make old people look like fools...I don't want to whip anyone's ass or shoot anyone but if it wasn't for us you young bucks won't be here. Try to be a little more understanding...you will be right where I am one day and I hope you can handle it as well as we do. I have paid taxes a long time to help you be free to do what you want. If you don't understand now, you will one day. Have a happy life !!!!!

It is said that she had a stroke and lost motor function.

9:42 a/k/a 10:33, I'm right there with you bro. You've got me by a few years, but we are of the same generation and after all the physical setbacks I've had in my lifetime, you could probably whip my ass too! I just have to chuckle at the "young bucks" and their swagger. We did that once too. Now tell me the truth, do you and Bert tussle up there?

Puggy Jay Jones said...

Speaking of back from the dead, I'm still around. (Hint: Drive a little, save a lot.)

SEQUOIA!!! Perhaps we just limit the number of cylinders or weight of the vehicle?

Ophelia said...

Well, enough about this. Everyone here has a point, from the Let's Euthanize the Oldsters crowd, to the Hey We May Be Old But Can Still Whip Ass contingent...can't we all just get along? (Hint: No, never on this feisty site...)

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!!!
