wouldn't be surprised if he's in some sort of state of depression where he's letting things go. He's been really sick, and struggles with his alcoholism. And he's under investigation by the FBI.That's no excuse, though. He has a wife, and children, and a family—not to mention all sorts of vultures who want his money. Surely, one of them could have been assigned the task of opening his mail for him.What a mess. Posted by: ladd on Feb 18, 08 1:43 pm

Is there something she knows that we don't? Does she have access to his medical records? Has heard him say he is an alcoholic? Although Melton is a disgrace as a mayor, one must ask if Ladd's little statement is an example of her so-called best practices of journalism. I seem to remember Ms. Ladd writing last week "The truth is, we need an atmosphere in which self-regulation of unsubstantiated attacks is encouraged for everyone..." If this is her idea of self-regulation.......

Everyone else is a lush when using alcohol except the JFP crowd when they glorify their own drinking.

as someone who has gotten drunk with some of that crowd, all I can say is I resemble some of that remark........

damn its cold in here...oh, never mind, my hand was in the ice bucket.

That's not my point. Ladd uses alcohol consumption to demean and smear folks. More than just Melton. How many times has she walked right up to the line of calling the Barbours alcoholics? Many, many times.

She's gone out of her way repeatedly to allude that there is a great deal of illegal drugs usage in, specifically, Eastover though I guarantee you that some of her 'Best of' attendees dabble themselves in same with regularity.

Just another day in La-la-Ladd land.

If was Melton, and I do hate to say this cuz I want him gone, I would sue the hell out of her for that statement.

Gosh, this is offensive. ;) I hope Marshall doesn't take any liberties to over-exaggerate this serious situation.

And put that money towards something pending!

Donna tends to follow the rules of journalism in the headlines and ignore them in the blog. Most journos are guilty of this to some degree (speaking as one). But when you champion the press on the one hand, then spew P.U. on the other, your credibility really becomes a point of debate.

Then there are the pontificating puff bags with their lame license for alliteration. CASTANZA, CAN'T STAND YA!

Head's gone from the JFP again. Didn't take long.

Head, are you going to stay gone this time or come back for more? Ladd's going to ruin you now, you know it. All your friends need her for publicity. And they don't. need. you.

Rico, thanks for the backup.

As for Anonymous Person... Well, what's the saying. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, shame on society. Fool me four times, shame on human nature. Or something like that. I can't remember the details.

I plan to live a nomadic lifestyle as far as Donna Ladd is concerned... I no mad at her, maybe one day she'll be no mad at me. But if she isn't, well, she's said much worse things about much better people. I'll live.

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.
