Happy Halloween

Posted below is an album that is perfect for Halloween.  The Alan Parsons Project took some Edgar Allen Poe stories and set them to music.  The album has somewhat of a Pink Floyd sound.  Such a feature should come as no surprise as Alan Parsons produced Dark Side of the Moon.  Oh, and none other than Orson Welles provided some readings.  Eat some medicinal marijuana gummy bears and enjoy.

Twitter Banned NY Post Over Biden Articles

Twitter took a page out of 1984 and suspended the New York Post account because it didn't like some stories the newspaper published about Hunter Biden.  Facebook and other social media companies banned sharing the Post articles but none went as far as Twittter did in actually banning the newspaper.  Well, such tactics call for some good ole jackassery.  The articles are linked below.  Feel free to read to your heart's content, preferably over a drink or while eating your favorite medical marijuana gummy bear.

Bar Reject Threatens to Beat Justices "Unconscious"

To say Zundria Crawford is mad at the Mississippi Supreme Court is an understatement.  Ms. Crawford failed the Mississippi bar exam in 2015.  Instead of retaking the exam, she did what comes naturally to bad lawyers: she sued and like most bad lawyers, she lost every step of the way.  Her filing have been rather colorful in nature but she really outdid herself in her latest filing.  

Here are some choice quotes from the Reject's appeal.  There is pretty crude language so don't say you weren't warned. There is also language that could be interpreted to be threatening in nature.  Enjoy

Irony

On the second morning of her Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Judge Amy Coney Barrett surprised the nation with a simple gesture.

There’s little that is off-limits in a judicial nomination hearing, so individuals who appear before the committee often come equipped with talking points and sound bites to counter particularly difficult questioning.

Weeding out the Medical Marijuana Amendments

The war for medical marijuana is the hottest political battle right now in Mississippi.  Advocates tried to get a bill passed for years but met defeat every time as favorable bills were killed in committee without even a vote.  State Representative Joel Bomgar had enough.  He gathered some allies, some cash, and much-needed signatures to place a medical marijuana initiative on the November ballot.  The Legislature placed a competing amendment on the ballot as well. 

JJ realizes many readers don't have time to dig online for the amendments. The full text of the amendments  won't appear on the ballot. As a public service, yours truly soberly dissected the amendments and posted links to their full text below.  Read for yourself and make up your own mind how you will vote on Election Day.  Enjoy.

A Safe Jackson Begins W/Strong Law Enforcement & Local Leadership

This guest column was submitted by Mike Hurst, Esquire.  Mr. Hurst is the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi. 

The City of Jackson is in the midst of an unprecedented epidemic of murders.  Just this past weekend, Jackson experienced its 100th murder, the most ever in the history of Jackson according to the FBI.  With still two and a half months to go, this puts our Capital City on pace to hit 128 murders by the end of the year, which would exceed the previous record of 92 murders in 1995 by almost 40%.  At this rate, Jackson could potentially become the second deadliest city in America in 2020, with a murder rate three times higher than Chicago, Illinois.

 Nature Magazine studied the data and found wearing masks reduces the chances of contracting the Covid-19 virus.  One scientist argued wearing a mask reduces the viral load even if infection takes place.  A lower viral load means the infection is usually less severe.  Nature reported:

Robert St. John: Friends

On March 12th of this year, I was scheduled to fly to Spain with my wife, best friend, his wife, a television production crew, and 25 travel guests. We were going to lead our guests on a 10-day trek that was to start in Madrid and end in Malaga with Barcelona, Valencia, and Seville— among others— in between. The film crew was to shoot season six of our television program, “Palate to Palette.” The guests had signed up for the guided tour to all of the places I fell in love with on my journey to Spain in 2011.

Sex, Band, & Videotape

Band volunteer raped girls, passed around to other boys, videotaped sex
Federal sentencing awaits, Hinds Indicts

A sexual predator rampaged through the Callaway High School band program until caught last year. 32 year-old Jerrell Jackson had sex with numerous girls in the Callaway band program.  One victim was only 14.    Jackson was a volunteer band director and a driver for Cline Bus Tours. His abuse of the girls included blindfolding and binding the girls, and passing them off to other males, some still in high school.  To commemorate his conquests, Jackson videotaped it all on his phone.  Jackson pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual battery and human trafficking last month in Madison County and is serving a prison sentence of 40 years.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
