Progressives hate corporations but love Obamacare. The irony of Obamacare is it pushes doctors into corporations, as it forces the private medical practice to disappear. Dr. Scott Gottleib writes in the Wall Street Journal:

The Nissan bond bill (SB #2920) went to the House today. Ed Blackmon tried to amend the bill so Canton could be allowed to annex the Nissan plant. The amendment failed and the bill passed the Ways and Means Committee. However, the word is Mr. Blackmon is going to try to amend the bill from the floor tomorrow.
Clarke Reed is one of the founding fathers of Mississippi’s modern Republican Party. Reed, 84, chaired the party for 10 years, beginning in 1966, when only 5 percent of the state’s population was Republican. Today, the GOP controls both state legislative houses and holds virtually every statewide office, with the exception of the office of the Attorney General.
Southern Company subsidiary, Mississippi Power Company, provides electricity to 23 Southeastern Mississippi counties. This electric utility monopoly is building a $3.8-billion coal plant in Kemper County, for which its customers will have to pay over time via their monthly electric bills. The state Legislature recently passed two bills for Mississippi Power and the Kemper plant: One allows the company to issue $1 billion in bonds for which its customers are responsible. The other authorized a seven-year phase-in plan for the Kemper plant’s electric rate structure.
Q. What is your political perspective on Mississippi Republicans and their support for Mississippi Power’s Kemper County lignite coal plant?

Here are the campaign finance reports for the Harvey Johnson, Jonathan Lee, and Regina Quinn campaigns. Harvey sitting on a wad of cash- over $100,000 cash on hand. Ms. Quinn reported a nice $25,000 donation from her husband and has over $10,000 cash on hand. Mr. Lee reports over $12,000 cash on hand. The rest of the candidates could not be bothered to file reports. Guess Chokwe and Frank think the laws do not apply to them. But then, when you represent thugs or your main campaign worker is a known thug, such failures to obey the law should not surprise anyone.

The Clarion-Ledger reported on the Madison Mayor's race yesterday. The Queen v. The Bagboy. Consider this the open thread to comment on the race you have all been waiting for. I'm sure it will get heated so be nice. If the curse words get out of hand or the comment is slanderous, it's not getting approved. Unfounded accusations probably will not pass muster. There are plenty of issues in this race to discuss without getting stupid. Here are some choice passages from the story:

This post is the start of something new at Jackson Jambalaya. It gives me great pleasure to present to you the preview of "The Light of Speed". This is not a documentary but rather an oral history of Mr. Speed and indirectly, Jackson. Mr. Speed told me over a year ago stories about Jackson such as how the Rez was built and his life when he was in the Air Force. I realized there were some gems in his memories and decided to capture them on video, similar to the WWII Veterans projects.

A video posted on another blog shows JPD officers beating the son of Rankin County Deputy Mike McGee at the St. Paddy's Day parade yesterday.
A review of the racial composition of the student populations of Jackson-area schools makes it quite clear "black flight" from Jackson is indeed taking place. There is no question the blacks who can afford to get out of Jackson are
doing so in large numbers as they flee to Byram, Ridgeland, and

Representative Evans holding up embezzlement bill while representing clients indicted for embezzlement.
Looks like State Representative Bob Evans (D-who cares) is trying to protect some embezzling clients of his. Oops, I meant clients of his accused of embezzlement. SB #2625 passed the Senate only to be held up in the House. A big deal since today is deadline day and Mr. Evans began his hold this morning. The bill keeps embezzlers from holding public office again. The bill states:
Get ready to get sick.... or mad. Most of the Black Caucus voted against HB #151. HB #151 is a step forward in the fight against child rape. Not statutory rape. Child rape. The bill requires doctors performing abortions or deliveries of children under the age of sixteen to preserve tissue or blood samples and report to authorities they suspect a sex crime took place. The bill states:

Pre-school is the focus of much debate at the national and state level. Shikha Dalmia And Lisa Snell of the Reason Foundation (Libertarian non-profit) penned this column questioning the usefulness of pre-school education in the Wall Street Journal:

JJ obtained the police report for the arrest of Eric Law through a public records request. Madison police arrested Eric Law for sexual battery and gratification of lust involving a minor. A Rankin County Sheriff's Deputy discovered the contacts and reported them to Madison PD. The report states:
See Evans brothers page under "Special Coverage" section on the right side of the page for a collection of all posts on this case.
Chris Evans and Charles Evans, Jr. will begin serving their sentences on April 15. U.S. District Judge Dan Jordan, III sentenced the two to prison after they pleaded guilty to the committing the largest mortgage fraud case in Mississippi.
The Hinds County Board of Supervisors discussed hiring a board attorney at its meeting last week. Tony Gaylor serves as the board attorney on an interim basis after Crystal Martin resigned last October. Board President Robert Graham said he wanted to hire Mr. Gaylor. Supervisor Phil Fisher placed the matter of Mr. Gaylor's employment on the agenda as he said the board needed to make a decision. Here is the video.

The Hinds County Board of Supervisors again rejected a motion by District 4 Supervisor Phil Fisher to accept competitive bids for a mosquito spraying contract last Monday. Board attorney Tony Gaylor attempted to claim the contract is a professional service and can avoid state bidding requirements. Mr. Gaylor said he would seek an opinion from the attorney general.
PERS issued an annual report stating Jackson's municipal retirement system is less than 50% funded. The unfunded liability is $63.5 million dollars. The unfunded liability increased $2.3 million from the 2012 report and $3.5 million since 2011. The retirement account covers police and firefighters hired by the city prior to April 1, 1976. The funding level is currently 48.8%.

The Department of Revenue ordered Hinds County to send all payments intended for Airwave to DOR. DOR sent a letter to the Hinds County Chancery Clerk on March 1 stating Airwave owed $157,668 in taxes to the state. DOR stated it will seize any and all Airwave payments until thee liability is satisfied. The board did not vote to pay Airwave its regular payment today even though it was on the agenda. Supervisor Robert Graham pulled the payment from thee agenda and said it would be dealt with at another time.

Pitiful because while the staff at Yazoo City High School is trying to help kids graduate, many of them just don't care enough to take advantage of the help offered. WJTV reported 30% of the seniors failed the state exam required for graduation.
The Columbia Journalism Review published a thorough analysis of the changes made to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. The article reports on the changing emphasis from a model based on journalism to one based on clicks. However, the article points out revenue plunged 40% over the last few years thus begging the question: how can a newspaper stay in business if it can't make money? The CJR reports:
The sexual harassment suit against Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield rumbles on as the mayor attempts to seal several documents containing accusations that were violent and lurid in nature in a telephonic hearing tomorrow in federal court. It seems the Mayor did not like what plaintiff and former city employee Kenya Burks had to say in her pleadings and answers to his questions. He really did not like the fact the media repeated much of what was claimed by Ms. Burks and accused her of "manipulating the media'. He said her court filings are:

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.
Note: Security provided by INS.
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!!!
