Yarbrough: Vive la France! My new best friends

I haven't cared much for the French since some weenie named Jean-Paul Monchau came to Atlanta a few years ago as France's consul general. He'd barely unpacked his bags before he announced that he intended to have the state of Georgia declare a moratorium on capital punishment and that he intended to see that the moratorium became permanent.

Yarbrough: Back in the saddle, if a little shaky

After the unexpected death of my beloved grandson, Zack Wansley, I wasn't sure I wanted to do this anymore. Twitting inept politicians, know-it-all media, smug entertainers, greedy CEOs and the terminally humorless seemed absurdly irrelevant.

I have just returned from taking grandson Nicholas Wansley to Scotland with his grandma to visit the land of her ancestors. I would have taken him to visit my ancestors except I don't have any idea where they are.

Yarbrough: Skeeter’s right; Georgia critics are just jealous

It never fails. Just let me say one nice thing about the great state of Georgia and I get letters from people who, (a) live in the state but, (b) are originally from a state north of the Mason-Dixon Line that, (c) they think is better than the state in which they now reside.
