Mayor Recovering

 The city of Jackson issued the following statement.

 A PCR test confirms Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba has contracted COVID-19. The Mayor had the test conducted Tuesday after testing positive from a home test that morning.  

He said Wednesday morning he was feeling better after experiencing some fatigue on Tuesday.

Despite at home in quarantine, the Mayor is available by phone and continues to be involved in all important City business. 

There have been no reports of similar cases in the Mayor’s administration. So far, over 91 percent of all City workers have proven they received both vaccinations.

 Mayor Lumumba released the following statement Wednesday:

“Good afternoon. I wanted to provide residents an update on my recent status. I did test positive for COVID-19 on a separate PCR test. I’m currently at home following quarantine guidelines. I will be periodically tested in the days ahead. I’d like residents to know that I’m feeling OK and expect to return to work shortly. 

We ask - as we always have - that residents do as much as they can to stay safe. You can still contract the virus despite your best intentions. It’s essential to make sure your chance of serious illness is as low as possible.”

More pressers about his Covid symptoms than the rampant murder wave going on in the city. #perceptionofleadership

My money is on he never actually got vaccinated, but claimed that he did, thus the reason for testing at home. Baby chowke wouldn't lie, would he? Right?

Fake Jacksonian with a fake name. Is anyone here aware that his father was involved in the FBI/JPD raid that got police killed and wounded. Bennie was apparently there as well. Home grown terrorists.

This what he gets for going to a booty club in Atlanta. He could have gotten something else.

Not true. Neither Chokwe nor Bennie was involved in the shooting. Chokwe was part of the braintrust of the RNA, a talker not a foot soldier. Bennie was an outside supporter not a fighter. Everyone involved with the RNA was not involved in the police ambush, just as every police officer was not involved. Do not spread untruths. The truth is bad enough.

So very glad the Boy Wonder Mayor is not sneezing anymore,
(and over his common cold symptoms).

I think Rachel Maddow, or someone at MSNBC interviewed Maggie Wade
about this breaking national news story last night.

Never knew, so I googled. Thanks. To me, it seems like the FBI raid was the turning point of his life.

Drink plenty of water and when you cant breathe go to the ER. Please tell them upon arrival that since the first three shots didnt work you'd like another. Dont forget to remind everyone that the failure of the mRNA injections to prevent your illness and infection is attributable to the people who didnt take it!

Thank the Lord. What would our poor city do without him at the helm, guiding us through all our turmoil?

Besides the record breaking homocides that he has worked tirelessly to solve, we have to take the one remaining thing in the city that is working and issue a new RFP to see if it can be put on par with the rest of our city services. Who would want us to have a failing school, a failing zoo, a failing water service, a failing sewer service, potholed streets throughout without making sure that our garbage collection service is also put into equal position.

If our exaulted leader is at home (whichever home he chooses this week) sick, who would be there to lead us down the correct path?

Sorry, I don't remember the raid to which you refer. Please tell us more so it can be googled.

Wish we could say the same for Jackson

Throngs of teary eyed citizens put their Christmas activities aside to surround their beloved mayor's home praying around the clock for his recovery and for his wave of reassurance from a window...except that they can't get near or see it for the wall.

6:47: you sound just like defenders of the Mafia.

This what the common cold does. Don't worry my little ones, we will survive as we have for over 100,000 years. To all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you again in 365.

KF at 9:43 No sir. I never defend a non-truth no matter who is involved. There was an investigation and a trial, which should not be news to you. People were tried and convicted and neither Chokwe nor Bennie was charged with shooting anybody or being present at the scene. The RNA did not plan the "raid" It was planned and initiated by the police or FBI. So how does it relate to the Mafia. If you have information to the contrary please publish. Otherwise....

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.
