Glazer: Spirited Shakespeare ‘Dream’ performance has a sad ending

OK, I'll come right out and admit it. I'm not a big fan of Shakespeare. I'm fine with a sonnet here or a snippet of "all the world's a stage" there, but to sit through two hours of grandiloquent oration? Thanks, but no thanks.

Crawford: Barnes is sounding more like a candidate

Over the past year or so, there has been one question about politics that I hear more often than any other: "Is Roy going to run?"

Oglesby: Don’t judge tax cases too quickly

I can understand why various personal factors logically and for good reason lead people to oppose daylight saving time.

Yarbrough: Some spend tax dollars but don’t pay them

Let me say unequivocally that Rep. Al Williams, D-Midway, and I are on the same page regarding the fact that the Georgia Department of Revenue says Williams and about 10 percent of his colleagues in the Georgia General Assembly are delinquent in paying their taxes.

Crawford: Georgia is rolling down a bumpy highway

There is less than a month to go before the legislative session adjourns and our lawmakers don't appear to be any closer than they were last year at this time to resolving the state's highway congestion issues.

Shipp: Political parsons are a waste of state's time

House Speaker Glenn Richardson has just unveiled a new vision for Georgia that would surpass previous endeavors and might even make a little money.

King: Senate's nuclear bill is about power, but not yours

Do you understand what transpired down at the Capitol when the Georgia legislature passed Senate Bill 31? If you do, let me know. I've been trying to come up with a clear picture of how it happened, but the whole thing is a can of worms.

Nichols: How do we end a war against shadowy forces?

It is easy to start a war by invading or dropping bombs, as the Japanese did on Pearl Harbor. Ending a war is more difficult. A country may choose to stop hostilities and retreat, but then the other side can claim victory. Perhaps the best way to end a war is to negotiate a peace treaty, but that can be difficult and have unintended results.

Yarbrough: Hello, Congress — Dalton is hurting

With apologies to Cool Hand Luke, what we have here is a failure to communicate.

Glazer: Hats off to a Georgia city that turned it around

More than three decades ago, I graduated from the University of Alabama with degrees in social work and counseling. I came back home to Georgia and proceeded to job hunt.

Corn: State universities should get back to core learning

When my father attended the University of Georgia in the 1960s, Dean Tate still knew every young man on campus by his first name. Alas, my recent visits reveal hallways that have all the warmth of a check-in counter at the airport, and the administrators are known, if at all, for their absence from student life.

Crawford: It was a bad week for Georgians

There are times when it just doesn't pay to get out of bed in the morning. Last week was such a time for Georgia's citizens and the people they elect to make their political decisions.

Oglesby: SPLOST is still best option

I usually early vote during its first week, but as I write this I haven't voted on the controversial Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax referendum. I will have before you read this. My delay has awaited answers to valid questions.

Tom Crawford: Legislators halfway done with little to show for it

Georgia's lawmakers have reached the halfway point of the General Assembly session, raising the question we ask every year: What have they done for you?

Joan King: Whatever we may see, there’s always more to story

I am fascinated by the Brian Williams brouhaha. I don't have television and have probably never seen NBC's "Nightly News." I don't follow war stories. Until the recent flap over "misremembering" his experiences in Iraq, the name Brian Williams met nothing to me.

Dick Yarbrough: Jekyll Islland holds its fire on thinning deer herd

If you are a supercilious liberal you-know-what or a sanctimonious Bible thumper, I have some good news for you. I am giving you both the week off. Enjoy it while you can. I will be back.

Dick Yarbrough: Random notions on Ideas on boors, Bennett, bullies, bands

If you watched the Super Bowl a couple of weeks ago - and reports say 114 million of us did - perhaps you saw a portion of the reprehensible behavior of Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who after scoring a touchdown proceeded to mime pulling down his pants, squatting as if on a commode before dropping the ball to the ground as if he was doing his business.
