Reflecting on the legacy of Sen. Johnny Isakson
Dick Yarbrough
I usually refrain from commenting on the topic de jour in the media. I’m not much of a “bandwagon” person. Let everyone else have their say and when the dust has settled, I will have mine. Otherwise, you risk being lost in the noise. Today is an exception. That is because my subject is exceptional. I am speaking of Georgia’s senior U.S. senator, Johnny Isakson, who has announced he will resign his position Dec. 31. This good man has decided it is time to end a singular political career due to a number of health issues including, most notably, an ongoing battle with Parkinson’s disease as well as suffering four broken ribs in a fall last month at his Washington apartment and surgery to remove a malignant growth on his kidney.
