Aircraft were jammed up to takeoff and land. Light transport west was cleared for takeoff from 90 degree to runway (uphill with deep ruts in taxiway surface). 'Cleared for takeoff large transport 2 mi final.' I was also 90 degree to runway 19R and thought it was too close. Then medium large transport Y was turned in very high for runway 19R and small aircraft Z was turned in from the north, crossed just in front and below medium large transport Y for 19L!!! Medium large transport Y went around. Lady tower controller seemed to just lose control of airport traffic.
