Ok, so our state leaders are totally out of ideas. The continuing drought in the Atlanta area has forced water levels to all-time lows and how does our state government respond?
Pray for rain.
Governor Sonny Perdue has organized a public prayer service to appeal to God for some much needed rain. This is the most ingenious, if not irreverent, pass of the buck I have ever seen. If it fails to rain in the next few days, this will no longer be an issue of resource mismanagement.
"It's not our fault the city is having a water shortage; God wouldn't let it rain. We asked and He wouldn't do it."
Come on, publicly praying for rain? We all know that government is impotent and useless, but these are elected public officials. They at least need to pretend they have a clue about what's going on. Why don't we all get our dowsing rods and wander around Gwinnett, Fulton, and Cobb Counties looking for water in the ground?
This is 2007 and we need to behave like it.
