-Headline of the day-
"Texas Gov. Perry Orders Up Rain Prayers."

Maybe you've been getting a lot of rain lately, but Texas has been dry as a bone. So something needs to be done (short of some sort of water management plan). Science predicts global warming, so clearly there are no answers there -- on to hocus-pocus. Like the Great Georgia then-Gov. Sonny Purdue before him, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is asking citizens to pray for rain.

Perry procliams "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 and robust way of life."

Here's my question: if Texans can just pray their problems away and set the state right, what the hell do they need a governor for? (Wall Street Journal)
