Tennessee Mayor Offers A Drink To Atlanta

The Mayor of Chattanooga Tennessee, whose goods are coveted by neighboring Atlanta, has sponsored a resolution designed to satisfy drought parched throats:

Whereas, it is feared that if today they come for our river, tomorrow they might come for our Jack Daniels or George Dickel,

NOW THEREFORE, In the interest of brotherly love, peace, friendship, mutual prosperity, citywide self promotion, political grandstanding and all that

I Ron Littlefield, Mayor of the City of Chattanooga, Tennessee,

Do hereby Proclaim that Wednesday, February 27, 2008 shall be known as

"Give Our Georgia Friends a Drink Day"
