Seems as if Sonny Perdue, Georgia's governor, has a somewhat new "southern strategy" for dealing with his state's drought problem.
The governor will host a prayer service next week to ask for relief from the drought gripping the Southeast.
"The only solution is rain, and the only place we get that is from a higher power," Perdue spokesman Bert Brantley said on Wednesday.
Perdue's office has sent out invitations to leaders from several faiths for the service, set for Tuesday.
Perdue has several times mentioned the need for prayer -- along with water conservation -- as the state's drought crisis has worsened. Over the summer, he participated in day of prayer for agriculture at a gathering of the Georgia Farm Bureau in Macon, Ga. Link
Actually, The Reverend has, I think, a much better idea on how Georgia should deal with it's water shortage.
Why not have all Georgia children simply write a letter to Santa with a request list for Christmas, with the number one request being water? Christmas is drawing nigh and Santa usually aims to please.
Oh yeah, I forgot.....children believe in Santa Claus....and they can't vote.
