Proud Of Madison PD and SO.. said...

Say whatchu will. Bring the insults. Recommend moving to Grenada. Moan about being squeezed between Canton and Jackson. Accuse us of stacking the stats. Sling in a few anti-Mary remarks. HOWEVER, haters, at the end of the day (and during the night) we get it right up here when it comes to law enforcement!

"Madison is lost move to Grenada Jackson rules if it wasn't for us you'd be cow pastures we have better dining and great restaurants out the ass all Madison has is Mama Hamil's we have Parlor Market and Whole Foods blah blah blah."

The voice of the deluded, saying what they must to help them forget their plight. When things ain't going well, blame someone else. That's the song of the Jacksonian.

Madison is doing just fine.

Can't even take a piece of good news without bringing Jackson into the conversation.

How can Madison crime drop if they have no crime? Isn't that why everybody lives there? They must have below zero crime now.

Just wait until the Taco Bell opens up, it's going to go down some more.

Hey 6:57, I notice you are pretty obsessed with Parlor Market - way more so than anyone who lives here (in Jackson). Why don't you give me your email address, and I can sign you up for Parlor Market's newsletter. Then, you don't have to get on the comments section of your favorite local blog to find out all the great things happening at Parlor Market.

The very concept of Jackson lives in the heads of every Madison resident rent-free. You people are pathetic. Oh, also, you forgot to mention how all of your houses look the same.

Whereas all the houses in Jackson are dilapidated in wonderfully diverse ways and have an endless variety of different bars on the windows.

Since some people on here are dying to learn the newest Whole Foods news (why else would they post so much about it here?), 6:57 will be ecstatic to hear that the Jackson location is having a sale on wild caught Pacific dover sole (only $6.00 per pound)!

More updates to come! I cannot wait to tell 6:57 what today's special at Parlor Market is!

Jackson residents - Enjoy filling up your toilets from your bathtub all weekend. Hopefully, there won't be a spike in tub water theft over the weekend.

Madison and Rankin counties will enjoy the extra business this weekend since none of your restaurants "out the ass" will be open.

I hear the odds are 9 to 1 in Vegas that Jackson won't resolve this issue this weekend. Jackson Public Works reminds me of Zoolander when they are trying to get the files out of the computer.

I have news:

It isn't Madison vs. Jackson (except in the TINY MINDS of people who also obsess over State vs. Ole Miss, and Ford vs. Chevy).

It's Mississippi against better places in better states. It's the Jackson Metro vs. the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Jackson Metro vs. Austin, Texas. It's Mississippi vs. Long Island, and Mississippi vs. the Pacific Northwest. For those without the skills and brains to make enough money to live in IQ meccas, it's Mississippi vs. Montana, and Mississippi vs. Northwest Arkansas, and Mississippi vs. Alabama's 'Golden Triangle'.

Madison offers an ALTERNATIVE to leaving the state. It's the one place in the state offering a Quality of Life that can compete with those of the distant places attracting our Best & Brightest. If there were no Madison, a great many more people would have fled Mississippi. I know more than a couple of old Mississippi families whose ONLY younger members are the ones who've moved to Madison. The rest of the children and grandchildren have moved away - FAR away. Otherwise, the elderly would be the last members of their families left in the state.

Madison is NOT Jackson's enemy. Madison WISCONSIN, and Bellevue Washington, and Boulder, Colorado, and Palo Alto, California - THOSE are Jackson's enemies, and Mississippi's "enemies", because THOSE are the places to which our most viable young people are fleeing.

Madison is KEEPING people from leaving the Jackson Metro, and from leaving Mississippi. Stop being so pluckin' resentful.

Ten bucks says you're 'not from around here.' Moved to the area in your 20's. Wanted to move to the big city but outsmarted all those elite Jackson dumbasses and got you a real nice place in Gluckstadt. So much closer to your hunting camp anyhow. And Starkville. Good for you.

I live in Ridgeland, but grew up/spent all my life in Jackson and still spend much of my income there. I hate to see it falling apart, b/c, guess what...that's going to impact all the surrounding suburbs as well. Even Ridgeland, Madison, Flow-stadt or wherever you live.

Here's an idea...why don't you start a Gluckstadt Gumbo blog and spend your free time there blathering on about specials at the nice new Krystal and how little Bobby (he's short but stout) has a good shot to make the team out at Germantown next fall.

Realizing much of what's said in the comments on JJ is not to be taken seriously, it sucks to hear comments like 8:54's that prople who don't live in the city of Jackson get a kick out of watching it burn and think anyone who lives there has inferior frontal lobes. Quite the contrary. I hope you make 39211, 39212, 39201 or wherever THRIVE. Ignore the trolls and keep fighting for our Capital City. Most of us are pulling for you and for Jackson.

Come on guys, everyone knows MPD is making up these stats! Crime is on the rise in Madison. Madison is doomed.

9:16, I'm confident that you have some facts to back up your claim that Dan G was fired for being white. lulz.

Here's looking at you said...

The words you say (or type) are a true reflection of your character. So many pointless and rude comments from both sides on posts like these always remind me of that. You may be "anonymous" on the internet but you are not anonymous to God.

I tell you, on the day of judgement people will give account for every careless word they speak- Matthew 12:36

@9:43. If I remember correctly, it was that racist Chokwe Lumbumba that fired him and said that he wanted to make the department more like Jackson....and replaced him

Thank you 9:30. Spot on.

It's Like This Here... said...

It's impossible to discuss crime (or its absence) in Madison without mentioning Jackson. Just as it's impossible to talk about the occasional, rare roach in my yard without eluding to the nest over at my neighbor's house.

Well said!

There's an "us versus them" mentality when it comes to residents of Mississippi.

The legislators keep passing legislation that hurts the citizens of the states, but the citizens blame the politicians in Washington, D.C. for all their short comings.

The best way to sum up Mississippi - is a scene from the movie "Annapolis" starring James Franco. Franco did a scene Vicellous Shannon who played a character named "Twins", Franco's character was named "Jake" - they were catching hell going through the Naval Academy. Jake was thinking about living the Naval Academy, and the scene went like this:

Twins: Can I borrow your starch?

Jake Huard: Look, I don't get it. Why are you still here?

Twins: You want to know why I stay in this room?

Jake Huard: Yeah.

Twins: Cause Jake, you're my Mississippi.

Jake Huard: I'm your what?

Twins: People who live in Arkansas, you know what their favorite state is?

Jake Huard: No.

Twins: Mississippi. Cause Mississippi's the only thing that keeps Arkansas from being the worst state in the whole country.

Jake Huard: I'm Mississippi.

Twins: Well you sure as hell ain't California. Listen, Cole and Whitaker are so busy tryin' to run you out they forgot about me. As a matter of fact, they've forgotten about every other plebe in this whole company. That's why I stay in this room Jake. Cause if Mississippi quits, then all of a sudden Arkansas is the worst state in the whole country.

Mississippians are so hell bent on cutting their own up, that they forget about the competition to the north east and west in Tennessee, Alabama and Louisiana, and damn sure Arkansas. We spend countless millions vacationing in those cities, without their residents reciprocating the same. We watch them host bowl games, NCAA tournaments, even win National Titles from Tennessee in Football, LSU has won 2 national titles, and Alabama with 5 - all with our own talent. Louisiana and Tennessee even take our money when it comes to the lottery and put it right back into their own roads, bridges and schools - while ours deteriorates.

We have to stop being our own worse enemy.

Legislators of Mississippi need to stop treating the citizens of this state as priority #1 and not as the enemy.

@9:30 You are absolutely correct. Madison is a desirable address and all the smug name calling doesn't change that. There are a couple of other areas around the state (e.g. Oxford, some coastal communities) that attract a well-to-do contingent, but they are small compared to the out of state locations you brought up, and tearing them down does nothing but drive out the remaining wealth.

But you did leave out the Skybox, where Bentley owners and Rolls Royce drivers congregate.

Is it a rule of this site that every post must devolve into a Jackson vs. the suburbs argument?

"Tag Applied For".. said...

Every time you see a police vehicle in Madison running its blues you see another one right behind or beside it. Keep bringing yo squirrely ass up in here to steal cosmetics and flat-screens, but bring a change of clothes. And, yes, those cardboard tags on Hinds vehicles are dead giveaways.

I know - this is Kingfish's blog he can post whatever he wants.

But he and his nemesis Ladd stir this "Jackson v. Madison" stuff up to get page clicks.

I live in Jackson. I lived in Madison. I have friends both places. I shop both places. I have no ill-will toward anyone. I'm not naive. Lots of problems in Jackson. Many, maybe most, problems are self-inflicted by the leadership. I get it. Choose to live where you want to. Eat where you want to. Vacation where you want to. This is America.

I want the metro to do well. I think the pie is big enough for everyone to prosper.

How do 'page clicks' manage to 'pay bills'? I thought page clicks were only for bragging rights when talking to the mirror in the morning. Please explain.

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.
