TuteTibiImperes: How about this - Georgia, you can have the water, but you have to annex the panhandle as well. Everything north or west of Tallahassee can become GA, and you can deal with the issues there.The rest of the state will be better off - we'll lose that wonky central time zone chunk of the state, and it will get rid of a bunch of conservative voters too.

Neighborhood Watch: You know who has a lot of water they don't need? Canada, that's who. Why not build a Keystone-type pipeline system that brings water down into this region, as well as the American southwest?I don't see why it would be any greater challenge then the Erie Canal, the Panama Canal or any one of a hundred other technological marvels of our age. The states that benefit could pay into a national fund of some kind to build and maintain it, plus provide royalties to Canada.It would be a win-win for everybody.

Krieghund: Thanks, Floribama!
jmr61: Any chance the residents of Florida all die then? Because that would be great.
kradio: All kidding aside, this is just a preview of the future when everyone realizes that water is more important that oil-and not just in Floribama.
starsrift: This is something worth talking about instead of Obamacare, Benghazi, and all the other outrages du jour.
Surool: Do you know who else tried to control the water in the Tri-State Area?
DirtyDeadGhostofEbenezerCooke: Let me guess on how the inter-state negotiations went:Alabama: We want this to be decided in these negotiations and not by federal fiat. Also, we want all the decisions to give us everything that we asked for.Florida: We want this to be decided in these negotiations and not by federal fiat. Also, we want all the decisions to give us everything that we asked for.Georgia: We want this to be decided in these negotiations and not by federal fiat. Also, we want all the decisions to give us everything that we asked for.We'll just call it the Middle SouthEast.
