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: Life’s meaning is made clear, taught by a life far too short

Longtime readers will remember several years ago when I talked about a beautiful little lady I had met when she was just 2 years old and who possessed the most crystal blue eyes I had ever seen. Her name was Abby Smith and she was a knockout.

Yarbrough: Let’s send August into outer space along with our beloved ambassador

I usually try to run the big decisions by you before I take action, but I know you have been distracted over the past weeks watching our selfless public servants in Washington put our interests and those of our nation above petty, partisan political sniping in the debt ceiling debate and marveling at how our crackerjack president, Mr. Swivelhead, makes Jimmy Carter's woebegone administration look like a cross between the Garden of Eden (pre-apple tasting) and Brigadoon.
