Why are reporters following blowhard David Archie around Robert Graham's district?

Interesting stuff. As a side note, be aware of subtle but total inaccuracies you hear from the talking heads of the local MSM. This morning I learned the Army Corps of Engineers is responsible for maintaining the level of Ross Barnett Reservoir, the flood gates will be closed at 6PM and the levy protecting the Fair Grounds was built after the Easter Flood.

Where's the sermon this morning? Ain't this a good time for prayer?

Incoming from liberal atheists in 4...3...2...1

Yeah those prayers might be too little too late. Seems the floods happen on Easter, St. Valentines, etc. Maybe pious actions would be more meaningful.

The Ross Barnett Reservoir was never designed to be a flood control device.
All forms of Govt. need to step up to bat to keep this happening again next year!!!!!!!!

5:02 - I looked for, but saw nothing, as to your suggestion. Or were you thinking Two-Lakes, a two gallon holding pond for a fifty billion gallon flow?

Add more levee and put in pumping stations like New Orleans. It would flush water through Jackson faster and nobody would flood. This Two, or One Lake is a joke.

Seems after 40 Years, nothing is on the drawing Board except 2 Lakes Plan or 1 Lake Plan. It's about time to get moving on the Funding & quit the fussing--

11:24 Good question. Why? Could it be because he lives in the district!

Looks like only poor people have been impacted thus far. Praying that it doesn’t destroy any taxpayers’ property

If you build in a flood plain don’t be surprised when there is a flood. All the money in the world can’t control Mother Nature.

Tell that to the people in Rollingwood.

Adding more levee is one crazy-hatched notion, 8:17. So, you'll trade down river flooding for Rez property and upriver flooding? In other words pour an entire gallon of milk in a taller glass with a paper towel under it.

I just pray the Reservoir Police Force is not at the table when these decisions are being made.

One lake, two lake, three lake - by any name is a plan to use public money for private property benefit without any flood relief plan.
It will benefit a few at a huge public cost.

One Lake will never happen. The folks downriver in La won't stand for the negative impact that it would have, which is why it hasn't happened.

As 8:30 AM penned, it would have little to no positive impact on flood control. It is basic physics/hydraulics. Only another body of water nearly as large as the Rez would help. One Lake would always be full due to its small size and the weir that would be built, so it wouldn't be capable of storing additional water. When a pitcher is full it won't hold more water, i.e. it floods.

Yes, One Lake is only a scam to fleece the taxpayers for the benefit of a very few people, while negatively impacting people and an industry downstream.

The people who would benefit include politicians with greased palms. They would include the politicians who are currently most vocal about going forward with One Lake.

"Never let a crisis go to waste."

Living in a well documented flood zone is risky and a roll of the dice. People who buy in a flood zone are in denial, which is not a river in Egypt.

It sucks for anyone who doesn't have flood insurance.

Having said this, I wish for the best for those impacted by the flooding.

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.
