Yarbrough: To a wise son, from a grateful dad

I am not going to tell you how old he is because he might not want you to know. So, I will just tell you that on his birthday next week, the last number will have a "zero" behind it and he was born as Dwight Eisenhower was going out of office and John F. Kennedy was coming in.

Corn: Feds should oversee complete US banking reform

King: Keeping nuclear power safe too costly

Our daughter, Susan, is dating a self-described "conservative." I've been labeled - by others, not me - as "a liberal." We all get along just fine; however, the boyfriend is pro-nuclear. I'm not.
