True the Vote loses

Gettysburg & Vicksburg. True the Vote & Chris McDaniel. Both suffered tremendous defeats today.  True the Vote lost in federal court today as Judge Nancy Atlas ruled that the National Voter Registration Act did not cover poll books while Chris McDaniel saw his election challenge thrown out because his legal team couldn't read a calendar.  True the Vote is a public interest organization that seeks to defend "election integrity".  True the Vote filed suit in federal court seeking access to unredacted copies of the poll books, absentee ballots, and other materials used in the recent Mississippi Senate elections.

The maps are posted below.  The agenda is on the last page.  It should be noted that page 2 states that a commercial district does allow for public parks, open spaces, and recreational areas.  Many people want this information so instead of taking another hour or two to write a post, I'm posting the proposal below.

 Looks like Unclaimed Freight is still trashing Jackson every weekend.  Residents  of Northeast Jackson are unfortunately becoming used to the site of advertising pornography that takes place every Saturday as the Pearl business drops a bunch of garish bright  red & yellow signs with a speed that would do any political campaign proud. Floyd could take lessons from these guys.  Needless to say, these Pearl rednecks don't do the same thing in Flowood as they seem to have respect for the mainly white town.  Unclaimed Freight is engaging in some advertising racism as it trashes a city that is majority black while refusing to do so in towns that are majority white.

The pictures were shot at 6:30 in the afternoon in June.  I used the automatic features of the camera (I know, that is heresy. I'm learning.).  The sun was setting but there is an open field in front of the ruins facing the sun.  The pictures were edited in the Lightroom program.

How not to practice law: Part 3.

 Earlier post containing rather entertaining facts of case and video.

The Mississippi Supreme Court took no action on two contempt of court motions filed against Vicksburg attorney Michael Winfield by Vicksburg Healthcare. The court held a hearing on July 24 to decide whether to hold Mr. Winfield in contempt after he failed to make payments as ordered by the court on April 30.  The court ordered the wayward attorney to pay $500 in sanction monthly installments of $100 and attorney's fees to Vicksburgh Healthcare in monthly installments as well.  Mr. Winfield paid the sanctions and fees in full a few days before this hearing- after Vicksburg filed its motions for contempt.  Mr. Winfield drew the sanctions and a serious ass-chewing from the court when he failed to appear at a show cause hearing on April 30.  Mr. Winfield appeared at the hearing forty-five minutes late- after the court ordered the clerk to contact Mr. Winfield as the justices waited.  A full court presided over the July 24 hearing.  Mr. Winfield is the brother of jailed Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

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.
