Yarbrough: So who cares that Dawgs lost SEC title game? Not many

Yarbrough: Farewell to a wise, gracious mentor

Today, I ask for a moment of personal privilege. It was two years ago this week that I wrote about the Three Wise Men that have so greatly influenced my life: Roy Hodnett, a real estate magnate on Saint Simons Island; Dr. Raymond Cook, my college professor, now residing in Valdosta and John W. Jacobs Jr., a broadcast pioneer and philanthropist from Gainesville.

Yarbrough: Shout-outs to friends, and goodbye to Sheila

Oops! I left the "t" off the Rev. Bryant Wright's name in last week's column about the possibility of the Southern Baptist Convention dropping "Southern" from its name. I was just so excited to learn that whatever the organization's future nomenclature, Rev. Albert Mohler, president of the Southern (sic) Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., will continue to favor us with his observations on such critical theological issues as yoga and women preachers. (Al doesn't approve of either and I don't approve of Al, but that's a topic for another day).

Yarbrough: Due process for terrorists? Skeeter’s not too keen

Everybody needs a guru. Someone you can go to whenever you find yourself stuck on the horns of a moral dilemma. Some climb the mountain tops of Nepal to sit before an old guy wrapped in a bed sheet and listen to him prattle about inner beauty.

Yarbrough: Who cares what liberal weenie Michael Moore thinks of Georgia?

In case you were rearranging your sock drawer and missed the big announcement, filmmaker Michael Moore, who is about as relevant as a female appendage on a boar hog, is asking "all Americans with a conscience to shun anything and everything to do with the murderous state of Georgia."

Yarbrough: Not quite moving or shaking yet

When Nathan Deal was elected governor, I made myself a promise that I was going to get along better with him than I did with his predecessor, George E. Perdue.

Yarbrough: No, the terrorists did not defeat us

Before we leave the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center Towers the Pentagon and Flight 93 over Shanksville, Pa., allow me a couple of parting thoughts.

Yarbrough: Feel helpless? Re-elect nobody

Bill White, the Big Canoe Tree Czar - he is the guy you had better talk to before you pluck a pine cone in the place - told me about a bumper sticker he saw recently that sums up the frustration many of us are feeling these days.
