Our sympathy goes to Texas in its hitherto unprecedented droughts and forest fires consuming the state.
However, our heartfelt envy goes to its citizens for the following solution put together by its governor, Rick Perry, ever mindful of the U.S. First Amendment and that bothersome business of the separation of church and state.
WHEREAS, the state of Texas is in the midst of an exceptional drought, with some parts of the state receiving no significant rainfall for almost three months, matching rainfall deficit records dating back to the 1930s ... NOW, THEREFORE, I, RICK PERRY, Governor of Texas, under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim the three-day period from Friday, April 22, 2011, to Sunday, April 24, 2011, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas. I urge Texans of all faiths and traditions to offer prayers on that day for the healing of our land, the rebuilding of our communities and the restoration of our normal way of life.
Yup. Prayers to the ICH* to correct climate change. Such a simple solution. Who needs science and logic? Begone I say!
