No problem. As long as he doesn't shut down the nightly Jackson War Games everything is gonna be awright. But where can I buy my ammo? Just askin'.

@9:50 you should've already had ammo, food, and silver. It's too late now.

The W.H.O.
Typical that chokwe would follow the WHO... nearly every medical professional is aware the WHO is a money making political organization rather than a health organization. Lord have mercy... the leader himself isn't even a M.D. they missed badly on Ebola, SARS... H1N1... they also were horribly wrong on the Aids epidemic in early 1980s. Swine flu wasn't even mentioned by the WHO...

@10:01: Are you a medical professional? Just asking before I lend weight to your comments.

@10:01 I can understand food and ammo, but why would I need silver?

Ummm - nope, we're cranking back up on Monday. Sorry Mr. Mayor, but we have work to do! And as soon as my building in Rankin County is finished, you can kiss my ass and my tax dollars goodbye!

10:09 am W.H.O. deserves some criticism during its current and past history but you overlook that it's an organization that has to depend on the cooperation of not just one country, but many. You are asking perfection ( which exists nowhere, ever in any organization of humans) and you don't balance it at all by asking " what has WHO accomplished that was important?"

What you know about WHO is rather obviously from biased sources.

Right wing idiot pundits are just as unreliable as left wing idiot pundits. But, you listen to the idiots you think will reinforce what you want to believe rather than doing your own research before forming an opinion. You become the idiot chorus.

You totally miss that no one person and certainly never one group of people always has the right answer, is always efficient, and never makes a colossal mistake. All would make fewer colossal mistakes if they weren't trying to please people like YOU.

For all the Jackson bashers:

Hinds has the most cases ( and the highest population and likely has done the most tests)

Hinds has a very low percentage of deaths compared to counties that didn't shutdown until the Governor insisted.

IF you yahoos would follow doctors' orders rather than assume you are invincible and know it all about everything and can't ever be wrong especially about people that aren't pale, we could have been over this already .

Admit it. You and all the " I never would risk going to Jackson " people came to Jackson for supplies. I saw your license tags.

Go ahead and list the accomplishments. Be specific.

The most obvious question to ask is this... why are we paying nearly $500 million dollars annual to the W.H.O. while other. Countries are paying 18-28 million. Odd China paid only 29 million yet they claim we the taxpayers must pay the 500 million. It's amusing at best. Anyone that claims we should fund 500 million while others pay 18 million need a,head examination. It's pure logic to ask why.i would pay what China pays. 29 million.

Ain't no one working in Jackson when there's no shelter in place order anyways. The maya is just flapping his gums!

12:50 - the U.S., actually us taxpayers, have been chumps for decades. When I consider all the giveaways, domestic and foreign, I don't see how our government continues to operate on the 1/3 they take from me. I'm surprised it's not closer to 75%.

It looks like Bass Pro is open, or am I wrong about that?

The city of Jackson Jackson has been shut down for years. Why is this a news story?

The mayor of Jackson is nowhere as important to people that pay taxes. He acts like some big shot. It's either funny or sad. I'm not sure which. He sure does have his head up his a$$.

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.
