The AJC has a very good story about the water wars.

The governor’s renewed request came after federal lawmakers from Georgia, Alabama and Florida emerged from a closed-door meeting Wednesday and expressed frustration that the governors from their three states aren’t working quickly enough toward a local settlement. The congressmen agreed to draft a joint letter to the governors urging them to meet as soon as possible to begin negotiating an agreement.

“I’m calling on all of Congress to recognize that water supply is a real 21st century need throughout our nation,” Perdue told reporters.

Now we are blaming Congress. Congress is screeching “It’s not our fault!” If only the pile of paper memo’s, drafted letters, and transferred blame were water.
