If I had one of those affected businesses that continuously has do deal with incompetence, I'd find a "go for the jugular" lawyer and sue the city.

Same old shit, different day.

Not quite 7:13,

The same old "SHIT" problem is with the sewer lines that are collapsing and causing overflows; this is a 'same old' problem, but instead of overflowing shit, there is no flow.

The good news for the city though is -- what doesn't go out can't go back in.

This will reduce the treatment requirements of the sewer treatment plant.

7:10, I think the type of attorney to which you referred tend to impress their clients more than the courts.

Our mayor can’t fix roads or abandoned libraries or crime or water lines or litter or water bill collections but he sure can go after a guy who made a tiktok video. You Jackson voters really going to re-elect the mayor? Aren’t you tired of living like a third world country?

How are businesses equipped to boil water? I get a restaurant, but does the CVS in Deville have a stove in the back room, or does the Office Depot in Jacksonian Plaza have two or three kettles in the manager's office?

Yeah, I get that they all should use bottled water for drinking, but the point is that these "boil water" notices are just being tossed out without regard for who or what they are impacting. It's inconvenient enough for a home, but at least a home can boil water for the residents. How does a school or a church or a business in Lefleur's Gallery do that, other than paying Kentwood?

Maybe you shouldn't ask for a drink of water next time you're at Nevada Bob's.

It's terrible for a restaurant. Because dish washing isn't allowed. And it's impossible to boil enough water for dish washing. So a restaurant has to close, use disposable plates and utensils, or wash dishes off-site.

It's not hard on an Office Depot or CVS. Nobody there is brushing teeth, cooking, etc.

Come to Madison and Ridgeland. We have drinkable water and you will not get shot. Be careful leaving Madison however or you might accidentally end up in Canton!!!

No, don't move to Madison! The Jacksonians remaining are responsible for Jackson's demise. They keep voting for Baby Chowke and the of the embiciles on the city council, DA, etc. They will bring their sinking ships with them.

It's like when Californians move to Colorado or Texas - they bring their incompetence with them while bloviating, "that's not how we did it in xxxxx."

Canton is better than Jackson. We have clean drinking water. Hey we have Amazon, and Nissan and that says a lot.

So, is the West side of I-55 is safe ?

(that was an attempt at being funny)

But seriously, I was hoping for an official statement from Broad Street Bakery ... or anyone at Banner Hall ?

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.

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.
