Yarbrough: Tooting my horn for marching bands

A young man asked recently if I would write a letter on his behalf, recommending him to the University of Georgia. That was an easy request. The lad is as bright as a newly-minted penny and I have no doubts that if UGA remains his first choice, he will excel there as he has done in one of the more academically-demanding private schools in our state.

Glazer: An average day, in my average life, on the Web

If you own a computer and have access to the Internet, odds are you have a guilty pleasure or two. No, I'm not talking about online porn or gambling sites. I'm talking about Web sites that have nothing to do with work or school, sites that you bookmark and visit often, maybe too often.

Casper: Mama was an old-fashioned conservative

My mother was a conservative, the kind that would make John McCain look like a raging left-wing liberal.

Crawford: At times, we need government’s aid

One of the themes underlying this year's waves of political protests - whether anti-tax, anti-Obama, anti-health care reform, whatever - is that government in all its forms should be abolished.

Oglesby: One GOP leader shows he can deliver

Far too much on both sides of the aisle has been made of S.C. Rep. Joe Wilson's intemperate outburst at the joint session of Congress. As he should have, he apologized to the president. As he shouldn't have, he refused to apologize to Congress for violating its rules. He could have prevented the furor by telling the House he overreacted and was sorry for that.

Yarbrough: Carter is poster boy for hypocrisy

I don't know how Jimmy Carter can look himself in the mirror. He has made hypocrisy an art form.

Crawford: Lawmakers should mind how they vote

Nichols: Obama’s ‘fireside chats’ could be teaching moments

As a preteen in the 1930s, my first contact with politics came when I joined my family in front of the Philco radio in our living room to listen to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "fireside chats." Most Americans did the same thing.

Crawford: GSU's Curry supplies missing ingredient

Georgia State University seems to have everything going for it: the second-largest enrollment of any state college, a campus that is revitalizing downtown Atlanta with all the new buildings going up, and a sterling reputation as one of the University System's four research institutions (a status it shares with UGA, Georgia Tech and the Medical College of Georgia).

Oglesby: GOP should follow Kennedy’s lead

This is not a contradiction. Ted Kennedy was one reason I always opposed term limits except in the case of the presidency.
