Yarbrough: Under orders to give good news only

Yarbrough: Only another 9/11 will fix border

The next time the illegal immigration advocates start whining about the poor Mexican workers coming into the United States to "do jobs we won't do" and to "make a better life for their families," please inform them that the porous border between lawless Mexico and the U.S. is also letting in drugs at a scale almost beyond description and that Atlanta is a major distribution hub for the hombres.

Yarbrough: Thoughts on NPR, teachers and 3 wise men

Let's hold off on dissecting the general elections until the political pundits have had their say. They don't know any more than you and I do - after all, we are the voters - but they think they do and telling them otherwise might offend them. Political pundits can be very sensitive.

Yarbrough: State needs a public school advocate

When I pay University of Georgia President Michael Adams a compliment, you may be sure it is the real thing.

Yarbrough: Potted plants crash President Peanut's bash

This isn't going to please those boys and girls with the dark glasses and hearing aids who are always talking to their lapels, but my column commandoes walked right past them the other night to attend the season's first Conversation at the Carter Center, otherwise known as Jimmy Carter's Out-of-Touch-With-Reality Pontifications.

Yarbrough: There’s no debate about this duel

In all the hubbub over the construction of a mosque at Ground Zero in New York City as a reciprocal gesture of friendship to Muslims who have agreed to build the Ali Khamenei Baptist Tabernacle in downtown Tehran, you may have missed the latest debate between Georgia's gubernatorial candidates sponsored by the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company, located in a pool hall in Greater Garfield, Georgia.
