Dick Yarbrough: Eulogies offer tributes irreverent but loving

I love a great sense of humor, no matter what its source. That includes obituaries. Joe O'Connor, a great American from Marietta, shared with me a couple of eulogies he thought I might enjoy reading.

Dick Yarbrough: Governor's loyal ally rides off on his own

Unless you are one of the intrepid public servants we keep sending back to the Gold Dome to get you out of our hair, or a lizard-loafered lobbyist lurking around the Capitol with free lunch coupons or members of the news media with coffee stains on their shirts and cynicism in their hearts, the name Brian Robinson may be unfamiliar to you.

Dick Yarbrough: Junior starts sizing up the presidential field

Please don't say anything to Junior E. Lee about this, but I had several people come up to me after a recent speech to ask why they had not seen his observations in the paper recently. If he knew that, he might ask for a raise.

Dick Yarbrough: Me a liberal? My bed is bone dry

I want you to hear this from me rather than from Donald Trump. I have been outed. I am a "bed-wetting liberal."

Dick Yarbrough: One man who defined a successful life

Five young men, ages 18 to 23. Two college graduates. Two currently attending college. The youngest headed that way this fall. All good students. All excellent athletes.

Dick Yarbrough: Random notions on On slowpokes, ALEC, Ted and shrimp

I have the greatest respect for the Georgia State Patrol. Theirs is a tough job with roughly 900 troopers available to cover a state of 59,500 square miles and deal with the kind of carnage they see almost daily on Georgia's highways. If all of this isn't difficult enough, now they are being required to enforce the so-called "Slow Poke" law.
