Perdue to meet with Alabama, Florida governors about water — behind enemy lines

Gov. Sonny Perdue will travel to Montgomery, Ala., today to sit down with his Alabama and Florida counterparts and discuss water.

On the agenda: What is it? Why do we need it? What can Georgia do so our neighbors don't demand every last drop of the natural resource and cause our cherished reality shows to eventually leave the Peach State?

Perdue will journey into the belly of the beast — a trap the Alabamians call the "Wynfield Estate at the Wynton M. Blount Cultural Park." Alabama Gov. Bob Riley will tell Perdue that he's has Georgia by the short hairs. Florida Gov. Charlie Crist will lift the lid on his mobile tanning booth and say that he agrees with Riley.

Just kidding, we're sure it'll be cool. It's been two years since the three men have had a face-to-face about the issue. And since Perdue's spent the last few weeks dealing with Speaker Glenn Richardson's resignation and the state GOP's implosion, this might be a nice break. Keep your eyes peeled today to see what kind of platitudes these fine gentlemen say!
