Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Check out what has grown up in a pothole on Princeton Street by Barr Elementary:






Don't sneer.  It's not a bad tree. It just needs a little love.

Even without the pothole, that street is a disaster. WTF.

This is the government the citizens of Jackson have selected.

They must be happy and content with potholes, raw sewage in the street, water problems and all of the other 3rd world disasters that are constantly getting worse.

In the meantime, I'm going to take a walk outside, enjoy my safe neighborhood and have a beer.

Hopefully, they're all as happy as I am.

Signed, President of Niknar

If Lumumba and other elected officials of Jackson are not totally embarrassed by this then there is no hope for Jackson. I know, none of them give a @$%#.

That's not a pot plant is it?

Too bad it's not Iraq or Afghanistan... President Bush and Obama would've rebuilt and repaved the entire road along with the water infrastructure.

8:48 - maybe without your knowing it, you've hit the nail on the head.

The administration of the Radical New City has been thinking that they are deserving of a bailout by the federal government. They cry that they have a failing sewer system, a failing water system, can't pay their bills (without acknowledging that the reason is that they don't make the users of the water, sewer, garbage system pay theirs) - and that the feds should send a few hundred million dollars down here to fix it.

Of course, all the while spending what little money they have on paying lawyers exorbitant fees, 'fixing' the zoo so it can reopen one of these days, supporting every black non-profit group, black performing group, black awards group - with money they don't have (and I don't mean that as racist, but the truth is that the only groups that get any funds from these 'grants' are all headed by politically connected 'leaders' in the community).

What they don't realize is that Jackson isn't the only city with failing infrastructure. Won't get into the details about what they all have in common, but to the feds Jackson's problems are just a drop in the sH**ter.

All the while, Lubumba and his incompetent Council members want to stick their fingers in every elected official that is in a position to help them. Screams and hollers when they don't get what they think they are entitled to and makes statements that if were reversed the PC police would have thrown the speaker into the dungeon for the rest of their political life. But of course, its ok for them as "elected black leaders" to refer to these folks that they think should cover their financial butts as racist; but don't ever let you make a similar comment in reverse.

But of course now all will be fine in the Radical New City - they are going to spend dollars they don't have to remove the statute of the hero of the War of 1812 from the gardens at City Hall.

Life will be good as soon as it gets gone. That's what's been holding the city back.

Maybe someone can do a junket from the Paris Air Show to the Versailles gardens to get some ideas for further urban plant development.

Has State Farm seen this before?

Green Oak should recommend pothole plants.

Do WLBT, WAPT, WJTV, or The Clarion Ledger ever interview the Mayor and ask legit questions?

I agree that the leaders of Jackson just badmouth everyone in a position to help them. I live in NE Jackson and I hope leadership can figure this out. I highly doubt it however. It's not everyone else's responsibility to solve and pay for our city's problems. I don't hear this from any other municipality outside of jackson . Lumumba is no leader he's a spoiled coat tail rider. I see him at country club and he thinks he's something special... meanwhile everyone else thinks he's a lowlife leech.

The rag we call the clarion ledger really has no more local editors. Very little metro Jackson area news. It's all national synications they place in the paper. I don't read it anymore.

I've often wondered if someone made Kudzu seedbombs and distributed them throughout jacksons many abandoned properties and unkempt wooded areas if it would damage or beautify Jackson. Or would it be an act of eco-terrorism.

So what ever happened to De'Keither Stamps magic $240,000 pothole filling machine??? Wasn't it supposed to fix all the potholes faster and better?

@8:48 AM - is onto something. Someone should report to the feds that the Taliban have moved in, which would justify a trillion or more dollars for rebuilding Jacktown.

Of course, for each trillion dollars, $900 million will go into the pockets of friends of Baby Chok, but that's just the cost of doing business.

Disclaimer: this does not include any "cost over-runs," nor fact finding trips to Paris.

Somebody should drop marijuana seeds in the potholes all over Jackson and see if any of them will grow. You know the city will give it plenty of time to grow before they even notice there's a pothole.

I'm honestly not surprised. I'm expecting the orange barrel on Plantation to sprout limbs at any minute. It's been there at least since 2017 when I started dating my wife. And I think she said it's been there longer. It's actually gotten bad enough that the barrel is now in the sinkhole.

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. 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.
