Gone Fishing In Georgia

Although Georgians face a bad economy, disproportionate bank failures, massive foreclosures, a big state government deficit, a stubborn drought and other problems, they can rest easy in the knowledge that their Republican Governor, "Sonny" Perdue, is on the case.

Amidst all the state's troubles, Perdue has championed a proposal--backed by nearly $20 million in state funds evidently immune from budget cuts--to make Georgia the bass fishing capital of the free world. Today's Wall Street Journal has the story HERE.

Maybe Perdue could be the GOP presidential standard-bearer in 2012: citing the parable of Jesus and the fish (give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime), Perdue could lead the country back to prosperity on a "Gone Fishing" platform.

Ha! Except I think the parable of Jesus and the fish is actually that of creating many fish and loaves of bread from few. The mantra "give a man a fish, feed him for a day..." is actually something entirely different! :)
