you don't have to go back to Jackson, just find another metro area in the south. even if you are a few hours away from Jackson or in a near by state, you are still way closer than Hawaii and have the option to make the drive to Jackson to visit family and friends.

I digress on the mayor, nobody can beat Frank Melton. Now poor schools? Oh yes, no doubt this is why families stay away from Jackson proper. The public schools aren't too hot and some are even dangerous. As far as poor planing, SOME things have gone unchecked and undone, such as Farish Street, MetroCenter Mall redevelopment, and the J-TRAN's new bus station that they started out but ran out of money to complete, and the Convention Center Hotel, and the Riverwalk project as well.

Plenty of evidence to prove that point! But I think we should all stay positive and have hope, it's the only thing we can do with a city like Jackson.
