The city of Chattanooga, facing a possible Georgia land grab as part of an effort to get access to the Tennessee River, is sending a truck load of bottled water to Atlanta. [Link]
Georgia? Let’s settle this on the Gridiron. Or maybe not, Tennessee has a decided advantage…..[Link] . While North Georgia residents can’t even wash their cars because of the drought, just across the line in Tennessee, a small town is building a new water park. Take that, Gov. Sonny “Pray For Rain” Perdue. As if Georgia residents actually wash their cars.
Tennessee State Senator Berke, however, contemplated a less-serious resolution to the dispute:
“I would offer to settle this over a friendly game of football, but that would be unfair to the state of Georgia.”
The proposal elicited instant ridicule from residents of the area on Thursday, as well as tongue-in-cheek saber rattling from Tennessee lawmakers.
One state senator offered to settle the issue with a football game. Another suggested floating an armada of University of Tennessee fans down the Tennessee River to defend the state’s territory.
Yet another piece of evidence that Tennessee is superior to Georgia.
Georgia history does not have a statesman like Andrew Jackson, a Medal of Honor winner like Alvin York nor a rassler like Jackie Fargo.
They do have fame as the setting for the movie “Deliverance”. GATA, literally!!!
