Mary must be saving paper. This is the shortest one I've seen yet.

Mary says more in 1.5 pages than Baby Chok says in eight pages.

This is an important read about the numbers that are being thrown at us. http://www.voxy.co.nz/health/5/361252

People shouldn't losing their minds over this. The more we delay this, the worse it will be for the 98% of us that need to provide for our families. The trickle down infection rate is delaying a sad inevitability. The measures mayors and governors are taking are mistakenly too late. Let it run it's course naturally. I think the lesser of the two evils. Unfortunately, people will die under both scenarios, but the majority of people who need to provide for others can. This, so far is the only choice people in a position of power can see. Hate to sound corny but star trek had it right: "The needs of the many out way the needs of the few, or the one." A tough decision, but a necessary one. Just another concerned father, brother, and son who wishes the best for everyone. God bless.

@2:14 - clearly thats because Baby Chocke (1) likes to hear himself pontificate, which is one of the few things he does well, and (2) because Mayor Mary doesn't mind dealing with a Governor of a different party --- and philosophy --- than Baby Chocke. Mary referenced Reeves' order and listing of essential businesses, for example, while Antwar wanted to create his own list. Maybe Antwar wanted his buddies throughout the country (those he is trying to get to join his revolution) to think that all those businesses and venues listed in his enumeration actually existed in the city he is screwing.

Please tell me liquor stores are still operating. I have 2 home from college, bored out of their minds and a husband to deal with. I may kill someone if the wine stops.

Madison did not "shut down", and this Order does not "shut down" the City. Things/businesses will continue to operate as they have been for the last few weeks. In Gov Reeves' prior Order, almost every business (except barbershops, gyms, tanning salons, etc) were deemed "essential", remained open, and still remain open. So, by extension, the Mayor's order doesn't change a thing, and everything that was essential or open under the Gov's Order still remains open in the City of Madison. Everything that has been closed the past few weeks will remain closed, and everything that has been open the past few weeks will remain open. If I'm wrong, please tell me how/where it's different than what we've already been dealing with. Nor is there any "stay at home" or "shelter in place" provisions in this Order by the Mayor.

@3:05 - exactly. Kingfish is spreading fear and false news. Just like when he said "gun stores are closed in Jackson". Not true.

Baby Chok is just trying to be relevant, but he's not.

Brunettes all over Madison are poised to sue Mayor Mary for winding up grey. And more than a few blondes too.

These orders just articulate the stuff we were told to do 10 days ago. You can still go to the Krogers and socialize. Geez

He actually made a few good points.

The usual rambling and such, but still a couple of intelligent ideas.

I'll continue to be a critic, but I'll also give the Mayor credit when it's deserved.

Are the figures for Madison County able to be separated by city?

P.S. I think the Jackson mayor did a good job and I don't live in Jackson or Madison.

I retract my prior opinion. KF is really a journalist--spewing misleading headlines to get clicks.

Wow 7:58 I read what you said as "KF is...Spewing misleading headlines to get chicks."

This is a tough board!

@ 5:03 - any poster who continues to put an 's' on the name Kroger cannot be taken seriously about anything else in the post.

Can we assume you shop at Wal Marts and Jitney Jungles?

The lumamba derangement syndrome appears to be worsening. We are at maximum infection rate in these parts.

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.
