How awesome is this?
Alabama Governor Bob Riley has sent a letter to President Bush urging him to deny a request by Georgia’s governor for a disaster declaration. The Alabama governor said such a declaration would put people and jobs in Alabama at risk.
Riley said in the letter that Georgia’s request that the president order less water be released from Lake Lanier, “would be a radical step that would ignore the vital downstream interests of Alabama.”
In the letter, Riley said he understands the needs of Atlanta residents, but said the state can not stand by and let Georgia to take control of the reservoir’s water to the detriment of Alabamians who live and work downstream.
Boortz floated the idea of the Georgia National Guard seizing Lake Lanier. I starting to think that ain’t such a bad idea.
