'Oh My!': The 2007 Gridiron Show Gets After It 

If it's better to give umbrage than to receive it, this year's Gridiron Show earned a few Good Conduct medals for its cast, who, er, took no prisoners in satirizing corruption in local government.

This year's show, "Oh My!" got its title from local FBI agent-in-charge My Harrison, who was an attendee on Saturday night, the second of two nightly performances.

As always, the show -- featuring skits in musical-revue style -- raised money for journalism scholarships and other student grants for deserving students at Mid-South colleges and universities.

Honorary chairman of the 2007, which was presented Friday and Saturday nights at the Al Chymia Shrine Temple on Shelby Oaks Drive, was Sheriff Mark Luttrell.

Reipient of this year's Headliner Award was 9th District congressman Steve Cohen, and Saturday night's performance was dedicated to the memory of the late Larry Williams, arguably the most stellar performer in the show's history .
