Yarbrough: Why are we Georgians so unhappy?

I feel like a failure. For years, I have told you what a privilege it is to live in the great state of Georgia.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company located in Greater Garfield, Georgia, is pleased to recognize members of the 2011 General Assembly who gave so much so that we could get so little.

Yarbrough: Lawmakers sell out tax reform panel

A.D. Frazier is not a happy camper. My friend and former Atlanta Olympic colleague spent last summer chairing the Special Council on Tax Reform and Fairness for Georgians, a 10-member council appointed by Gov. Sonny Perdue, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and House Speaker David Ralston.

Yarbrough: Good news only, she commanded

It is not easy being a househusband-cum-columnist. Trying to figure out where the paper towels are located at the same time I am trying to figure out where the commas go makes my brain hurt.
