Glazer: A mother’s scent, sense live on

Yarbrough: Talking politics with media pros

I like to surround myself with those smarter than me. In my case, that's not hard to do. I could make a sack of rocks look like a Mensa meeting. So I was flattered to be asked to lunch recently with a group of reporters, editors and long-time political observers in Atlanta and listen to them talk politics.

King: Sticking to dangerous beliefs beyond fact

What do you know about opinion polls? We're confronted with them every day. The polls say this, the polls say that, but unless you have taken a course in statistics, you probably don't understand the finer points of opinion polling.

Glazer: Kids still need a chance to act the part

It all started when the Harley Avenue Primary School staff decided to cancel the yearly kindergarten musical. It's long been a tradition at this Elmwood, N.Y., school and many parents were understandably unhappy. So much so that one parent even started an online petition to restore the performance.

Crawford: Beware gun law’s dangerous effects

It's official: Gov. Nathan Deal last week signed the "Guns everywhere" bill that expands the public areas where persons with a carry license can legally take firearms. The governor's action, which had been long expected, prompted differing reactions from different groups.

Yarbrough: Wingnuts and weenies; Junior’s early peek at 2016

I was on St. Simons Island last week scarfing down massive amounts of corn-fried shrimp at the exquisite little Georgia Sea Grill when someone came to the table to inquire if Junior E. Lee had finished his analysis of the recent election. That really puffed Junior up when I told him that.

Crawford: Is electing a school chief really necessary?

Early in January, Richard Woods will be sworn in as the duly elected superintendent of state schools. He could very well be the last person ever elected to this statewide constitutional office.

King: Election results won't solve our problems

"How do you spell relief?" Clue: It's not Alka Seltzer. It's the elections. They're over! Even the losers are breathing easier.

Yarbrough: One terrorist we should thank for his service

This is a story I shared with some of you a couple of years ago, but given the well-deserved tributes this week to our veterans, it seems an appropriate time to share it with all of you. It is about a terrorist; an honest-to-God terrorist. Not only does he not deny the appellation, he's proud of it.

Crawford: This year's election had a familiar look

This was an election for people who enjoy watching reruns on TV.

I called Junior E. Lee and asked when he would have some post-election analysis to share with you.
