Once again, the State of the Column can’t be overstated
Dick Yarbrough
My Fellow Georgians: I come before you today to submit my annual State of the Column address! (Yay! Clap! Clap! Clap!) I can state to you unequivocally that the state of this state cannot be overstated! (Yay! Yay! Clap! Clap! Clap!) Let me say at the outset that I know that the New York Times (Boo!) will be fact-checking every statement I make. (Boo! Boo!) My friends, it’s a fact that I don’t care what the New York Times thinks! (Standing ovation!) The year 2017 was one of challenges. I am pleased to tell you that we met those challenges with a barrage of nouns, verbs, subordinate clauses, a few compound sentences and a lot of misplaced commas! And I have only begun to conjugate! (Thunderous applause.)
