Cops don't need to be running computer systems and cops don't need to be administrating.

Thank you KF for not erroneously calling it the DMV.

The legislature appropriated $ last session to correct the problem. WHERE did THAT $ go?
MPH does not WANT to correct the problem.
My opinion izzz that Marshall Fisher has long been retired on the hi

Only in government do press releases take the place of actual execution.

Maybe next year instead of patting themselves on the back about a trooper school unleashing more traffic cops to make those lines even longer we can have a school for folks to renew licenses, accept payment for speeding tickets, administer driving tests, etc.

This of course assumes that each transaction will be completed in the allotted time, and that all staff show up for work that day, it will also require the staff to actually WORK instead of sitting on ass, shooting the shit and playing grab ass while they're supposed to be serving taxpayers - I have ZERO FAITH that this will make a difference.

12:32- Who cares? Do you Fedex something when you really just mean send it overnight? Do you ever wipe your nose with a Kleenex when it is actually just a regular old tissue? Ever say Jacuzzi when it isn't actually a Jacuzzi brand but a generic jetted tub?

Good job! At least DPS realizes they have a problem (finally) and are doing something about it. Hope the pilot program works and they roll this out statewide because the current system is truly broken.

Take the short drive to Kosciusko. Once you do you'll never waste your time at Woodrow Wilson or Pearl again.

@2:53 understands how this works. This doesn't fix work ethic. Every time I've been, they have been adequately staffed to handle things in a timely manner. But they are lazy and slow. They don't care.

Nope. Bigshot legislators, etc. found out they have a problem and told them to fix it.

It’s past time to take the license function from MDPS. Fisher has used this to hold over the heads of the legislature for more operating costs since he has been at the helm. Either make the staff accountable or get a Department Head that actually wants to serve the citizens and manage employees.

DPS is typical of most any state, county or local govt agency. The employees that are behind the counters are rude, incompetent, poorly trained, have been in the same position for 20+ years and truly don't give a damn. If they were put in a corporate environment they wouldn't last a month before being terminated.

If state, county and local govt employees that serve the public were given mandatory quotas on the number of people they had to process in a day and that quota was what determined their pay things might change.

What ever happened to the 4 million dollar drivers license facility Madison County was going to build for DPS? The supes took money from every department for this and we haven't seen or heard squat from it since. Its probably getting spent on the mud hole at the corner of Sulphur springs road and hwy 17.

Appt for License or road test. You have to be kidding. Those dumbasses can’t check emails and be told to be available for appt they are dumb. Hell thats the problem. You can’t fix that with online services. Silly shit ever. People this won’t be fixed until you welcome a Gov to this state that cares less about making people happy and letting it run into the ground. Hood has a battle when he takes office. Will take a while to fix the DPS mess.

Shit... FISHER that’s the problem. Depleted all other agencies and placed ones to lead that can’t spell their names. Go interview the director of DMV, KF the damn man is a hammer handle. Dumb as shit. Please go see for your self why Driver License is crap. It’s leader once he says good morning he has told you everything he knows. What does the people expect. They don’t know! The ones in charge of this entity. That’s the damn problem. It’s nothing else. Computers made appts will further the mess. Y’all see!

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.

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.
