Measles Traveler visits Hattiesburg

State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobb is holding a press conference on Measles right now.  Watch the presser below.  Apparently a  traveler with measles visited Hattiesburg.  There were two locations were people may have been exposed. April 9 at Subway Restaurant at Circle K (Highway 11) in Hattiesburg between 2 and 4 PM and Raising Canes on Hardy Street  on April 5 from 10-11 PM.





Knox News reported yesterday:

Officials have confirmed the first case of measles in Tennessee this year as the annual total of cases across the country continues to approach record levels.

The highly contagious disease was confirmed in a resident of the eastern part of the state, the Tennessee Department of Health announced Thursday. Officials would not specify which county, nor would they release any information about the resident.

The news coincides with a surge in measles cases in both the U.S. and abroad. Ninety cases were reported across the nation last week, bringing the total for the year to 555 in 20 states, according to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That figure — which doesn't include the Tennessee case — is the second-highest total since measles was declared "eliminated" in the U.S. in 2000.
This is probably the same person who is the subject of the press conference.  Dr. Dobbs said he apparently traveled through Mississippi while contagious.

Kingfish note: I can't believe we are actually having to have this press conference.  Unbelievable.

Wow.  Check out this Facebook comment on the stream:

 These people make outbreaks just to profit money. I don’t see anybody getting chickenpox anymore

You really can’t believe this? Stupidity knows no bounds nowadays. And you’re quoting something from Facebook? Where stupid breeds more stupid?

With a general populace that even considered orange man fit for presidency, are we really surprised this is happening?

Full blown Idiocracy will be upon us soon.

LMAO Now Trump is responsible for the measles? Y'all are deranged.

Too many in our culture today seem to completely lack awareness of others. Darwin comes to mind so often when I hear news reports, one after the other, in which injury or death occurs due to lack of situational awareness. It’s like building a house next to the Mississippi and crying in dazed wonder when you get flooded.

If only someone would create some sort medicine that could prevent others from being infected by such a horrible disease.

What time is 4:14 supposed to be back at the asylum? I know it's Good Friday and all but rules are rules!

@5:15, it’s good that you disagree with the president’s positions on vaccines. Thinking on your own is the first step to recovery. Good luck!

Anti-vaxxers are collectively the dumbest people on all of planet earth. We need to banish them all to some vaccine-free island from which no one is ever allowed to return.

Talked to a person whose daughter is an epidemiologist working on the border. They have seen border crossers with a mutated form of measles. Some of this, maybe most, is coming from south of the border.

People that try to use the Bible for and excuse not to vaccinate are no different than the people who use the Koran for justification for killing others.

There's vaccines in the Bible? Pasteur was a plagiarist? Lead me to the fainting couch!

5:15 pm Look up what President Trump has said about vaccinations.
I don't certainly don't think he initiated the vaccination myth, but he certainly endorsed it.
I heard him do so in "real time".
I don't think he actually believes vaccinations cause autism, but he will say whatever he thinks will " sell" his product ( himself).
I strongly suspect that Trump and Kushner children were vaccinated, however. I kept hoping a reporter would ask.

Migrant children from south of the border presumably are screened by the US when they arrive here, and can receive medical treatment, quarantine, and vaccinations as needed. There is no hysterical, ignorant refusal to vaccinate in Mexico like here but there is rampant poverty which is why Hispanic children may not be vaccinated.

My issue is with US citizens, like Jews in NYC, who refuse to vaccinate their children. I don't want nasty, contaminated American children anywhere near my family and will not hesitate to call them out publicly if I know who they are and tell them to get away from us.

7:40 pm - There is no mention of vaccines in the Bible but LOTS of stories of plague and disease. Read your Bible, duh.

If you don't want to take the chance of catching measles take the shots.
Let the people make their own choice if they want to take a chance or not.
If you take the shots you should not be worried about getting measles.

11:06 - It is not just about YOU or individuals' rights to decide whether to be vaccinated. Measles damage unborn children. I have a sister born profoundly deaf because our mother was exposed to measles when she was 3 months pregnant before a vaccine was developed.

People usually stop at Stuckey's in Hattiesburg....

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.
