    I cannot believe I have to update “The Return of Malaria Jack” again. When I originally wrote this column in 2010 I would have never imagined in my worst nightmare that 6420 lost and misguided souls would have actually cast a ballot for our former mayor Jack Ellis in the primary election on July 19, 2010. (There were 2 additional voters I did count on, Jack and his wife. Ellis actually received 6422 votes.) Back in September, 2010 when I wrote this I felt a sickness coming on. I had been getting headaches, chills, and muscle pain, the sweats, along...

    The fragile bonds of civilization that keep society peaceful and orderly are fraying in the face of mobs organized online. Last Sunday, an organized mob of about 4 dozen people attacked a Walmart in Macon, Georgia, intentionally doing damage to displays and merchandise and dragging a man out of motorized cart and throwing him to the floor. The Macon Telegraph reports: The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the store’s main aisle about 1:50 a.m. Sunday, “destroying merchandise displays and items,” a sheriff’s deputy’s report of the incident noted. Floors in parts of the store were...

    JUNE 30--Led by a teenage boy throwing gang signs, a mob of vandals descended on a Walmart store in Georgia early Sunday and trashed the business in a reported attempt to “see how much damage they could cause,” police allege. During the 1:45 AM ransacking of the Walmart in Macon, rioters pulled a patron from an electric wheelchair and dragged him to the floor, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office report. As seen below, a Walmart surveillance camera recorded the vandals racing through store aisles. Investigators say that a “crowd of 40-50 individuals consisting of black males and females”...

    Surveillance video of a wee-hours ruckus at a Macon Wal-Mart on Sunday shows a teenager race inside flashing gang signs ahead of a mob of four dozen or so people who burst in and smashed merchandise. The commotion, which caused an estimated $2,000 in damage, appears to have been planned. Some in the crowd also snatched a man, apparently a shopper at the Zebulon Road store, from a motorized shopping cart and dragged him to the floor, Bibb County sheriff’s officials said Monday. The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the store’s main aisle about 1:50...

    Race-RiotsJohn J. Owens is absolutely sure race had nothing to do with the reason why 30 black people attacked five white people, including a mom and a baby, near Macon Georgia last week. The alleged assailants and victims could have been any race. “Color doesn’t matter, only the ‘idiot factor’ matters,” opined Mr. Owens in the Macon Telegraph. That means the rest is random. Anyone who ever took — and passed — a course in elementary statistics might wander about why Mr. Owens is so willing to dismiss race as a factor in the violence. Because the odds of 30...

    As people headed inside St. Paul AME Church in East Macon to hear controversial the Rev. Jeremiah Wright deliver a revival sermon today, a band of nearly 20 people, led by a local radio talk show host, protested the visit. Wright silently entered the sanctuary during a choir anthem along with other ministers. He knelt at the altar to pray while the choir finished singing. Outside of the church, protestors shouted, “Not G.D. America, God Bless America” and “Jeremiah Wright is wrong.” They tried to warn people going to hear the sermon that Wright preaches hate, not love. Wright, speaking...

    Some Macon City Council members are scolding one of their colleagues for passing along to the administration a constituent's suggestion they say is racially insensitive. Tuesday morning, a Macon man e-mailed Councilwoman Nancy White in response to Mayor Jack Ellis' pledge to spend "whatever it costs" to refurbish the City Auditorium in advance of Oprah Winfrey's Nov. 17 visit. The resident asked the city to use existing contracts to get inmates from Central State Prison to do the work, because he said it would be cheaper for taxpayers.

    MACON, Ga. (AP) - Some Macon residents have called for demonstrations and boycotts after the mayor of the middle Georgia city formally reached out to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez with a declaration of solidarity.

Some local leaders have blasted the mayor's decision to support Chavez -- who is a vocal ally of Iran and Cuba who has called President Bush "the devil." Former mayoral candidate David Corr said...

    Macon Mayor Jack Ellis has sent a declaration of "solidarity" to Hugo Chavez, the fiery populist leader of Venezuela who has labeled President Bush "the devil" and pals around the world stage with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Cuban President Fidel Castro. Ellis said Thursday he sent the proclamation not only in his capacity as mayor of Macon but also as the vice president for tourism for the World Conference of Mayors. "We commend President Chavez for the things he's done in this country," said Ellis, citing Chavez's efforts to subsidize the cost of heating fuel for low-income residents of...
