Tennessee, can you spare your river for thirsty, friendly Georgia?

Pretty please? Wouldn't it be nice to do the right thing and help our metro region continue sprawling? I mean, we did kind of pass legislation in 2008 saying we'd look into redrawing the border so we could tap that mighty river you got there. We could just avoid all that red tape and work it out, right? Whattaya say, eh?

Tennessee officials still have no intention of letting Georgia tap into the Tennessee River, despite a federal court ruling last week that set a three-year clock ticking for Atlanta to find a new water source.

"Tennessee officials are not rethinking this issue," said Gov. Phil Bredesen's spokeswoman Lydia Lenker on Monday.
