Jackson, Mississippi - The gift that keeps on giving!

Need a consultant to study the problem and report back in a few years.

I get tired of you Madison and Rankin County people always slamming Jackson. Come back and help your state capital instead of making snide remarks from the sidelines. Dig your heels in Jackson and work with us to bring it back.
Live in a neighborhood with big trees like Belhaven and Fondren instead of neighborhoods put up in cow pastures to accommodate all of the white flight.

@11:11 AM - have you tried a comfort dog? Safe space? Teddy bear? Xanax? Group hug? Turn in your man-card?

Isn't this the pot-hole that has its own zip code?

Kennuf’s coat should be large enough to cover it.

@Jacksonian,

Jackson deserves all the shit it gives. My brother used to live in Fondren when he was going to pharmacy school 3 years ago. In the year he lived on Meadow Heights his house was broken into twice. Once right before before Christmas and all the Christmas presents were stolen. Even had the TV ripped out of the wall off the studs. It's a shame too because the neighborhood pretty nice considering.

The two most important things that must happen before Jackson can even begin to consider a true recovery is crime must be suppressed and roads repaved.

The other thing that's keeping Jackson afloat is northeast Jackson. I dont know how much longer that will last with the country club closed and arguments over what is to replace it. Hopefully they'll try to replicate Renaissance at Colony Park and bring in some upscale business. Lord knows Jackson needs business.

@11:11, did you really just tell us to "dig [our] heels in Jackson" on a post about sinkholes?

We have the money, but our pothole fixer is broke. s/ Jackson Admin.

Let's be adults here: there is no "digging your heels in."

Like businesses, cities die when the world changes around them. You can show up to work every morning at K-Mart thinking, "By golly, I'm just gonna use a big smile and some elbow grease and make this place profitable."

But the market doesn't care. Your K-Mart is going out of business, just like all the other ones.

Jackson is worse than its competitors (Birmingham, Mobile, Little Rock) by a wide margin in every measurable way. People see that, they leave, and the death spiral accelerates.

"Digging your heels in" is like fighting the tide. You only end up drowned.

11:49, No one will spend any money on a quality business development in Jackson. I look for a low income Hud housing project to be build in that large area off of Old Canton road. That is the only money to be invested in North East Jackson.So Jackson is dead, dead and getting deader.

Hey Jacksonian, you have absolutely no stickin' idea how totally PISSED we are that you have taken over OUR hometown and completely destroyed it. Now you want us to come back and fix it. So, you openly admit your screw ups and you have no idea how to "overcome" your issues.

I recently drove through my old stomping grounds in South Jackson with my son. He began singing the theme song to the T.V. show Monk....It's a jungle out there.

That's my gut feeling. I have heard from a source in an architectural firm in Jackson there was talk of the people who did Renaissance were in talks about doing what they already did in Ridgeland. However I am not sanguine about it happening. Also heard about putting in low rent apartments and I cant think of a more surefire way of immediately killing northeast Jackson. Fiancee who lives in the area says she thinks they wont do anything with it for another 10 years knowing Jackson leadership.

Hey Jacksonian......don't get your panties in a wad.

Failed/destroyed cites is just your typical democrat mode of operation. Get to be in power for a couple of decades, ruin everything about what use to be a viable city, then cry and play the race card and blame game on everyone, but yourself.

Look at Atlanta.....democrats took over the city and were ecstatic on having a major "black" city. Well as the city declined the blame game started. Now that whites are moving back and beginning to regain power and renew the city, you're crying the city is becoming too white and blackness is fading....there is just no satisfying you people. Make up your frik'n minds

Use imminent domain to take all residential property west of 55. Convert it to commercial, and hope that the residents end up in Bolton.

I agree completely. Jackson is a dysfunctional hell hole. Yet the last time I noticed there were no fences around the place and still people live there.

What kind of people would do such a thing?

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.

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.
