What could possibly go wrong with some of my favorite things?

The patrons were supposedly called and told to try taking High Street to Lamar Street.  Good luck. ;-)

Jackson...the gift that keeps on giving....

I wonder if the patrons got "Trapp-ed" and couldn't get there?

Remember the NFL preseason game a few years back?

I heard the parking garage wasn’t open

This type of incompetence is why you have failed city/states/nations that require foreign aid to keep their people from starving to death and blame everyone else while they beg.

It's like watching a collapse that you've seen over and over happen before your eyes in slow-motion

Those that could leave Jackson mostly migrated to Madison and Rankin Counties. Now that the Jackson kudzu effect of crime, blight, and overall decline is sofeading into those two counties. Unfortunately, there is no good area to go beyond those counties.

I agree with most of your comment. However it was the middle class that fled Jackson. NE Jackson simply can afford to stay as they can pay 3 or kids private school tuition. Example look at Jackson prep. JA. etc... the poor and the rich are all that remains in Jackson. Too bad the working class left. I hate seeing that honestly.

Who knew.

Those pretty Austrian von Trapp girls were actually closet "sweet potato queens".

Thanks to emailed directions from the city and a parking plan, we moved slowly but surely through downtown to the SOM matinee without a hitch. To those responsible—well done!

Echoing the comment above. We got an email with a plan for ticket holders to get to the parking garage. That went smoothly and the show was Great!! Leaving Thalia Mara though, it was absolutely horrible at how much trash and garbage was strewn about from the parade. Just such a shame.

8:29 clearly has no idea how many JA kids live in Madison and Rankin counties. I went to JA growing up, and I lived in Madison county. My kids aren’t going to JA simply because of how bad the area is. Money isn’t a factor in the decision. And Prep is in Rankin county. Nice try though.

Of course every post has to turn into Jackson vs former Jackson jabs, but the parade was fun. Huge turn out. I hear the traffic plan for the musical show worked out as well as you could hope. It was a good day for Jackson. Yes, the scheduling folks should probably huddle up prior to putting next year's calendar together, but they pulled it off and kudos to everybody behind the scene who made it possible for tens of thousands to enjoy a fantastic day.

I live in NE Jackson and all three of my kids attend JA. However, the post said those that could afford to leave have left. That's simply not the case. Those that didn't want to pay private school tuition left. Yes many Jackson kids attend st Andrews JA, as well as Jackson prep largely. I think the clarion ledger article last year about northside drive and Meadowbrook Dr being a tale of 2 cities summed up Jackson well. One side live the halves and the other live the have nots. If I couldn't send my 2 sons and daughter to private school I would certainly live in the burbs. I have a lot of friends and a sister that live in Madison. No need to put down where people opt to live. I don't understand the reasoning in that.

NE Jackson enclave is shrinking quickly. Raging Buyer's market. The property tax burden and the need to private school is suffocating. 6mil CIDs will only make it much worse.

The trash was terrible but it's really weird how Jackson doesn't put out trash cans for the event. I brought garbage bags with me but I think at least some people would have used garbage cans HAD THERE BEEN ANY.

You serious? They don’t even fix potholes. What makes you think they care about trash cans????

To those of you complaining, just ask Queen Mayor to host the parade next year up in Madison.

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.
