"I'll pray for it" is not a plan
(I'm totally stealing this from Zeno Ferox over at Halfway There, but since he stole it from PZ Myers, I'm not too worried.)
Back in April Governor Goodhair proclaimed "Days of Prayer" to ask for an end to their unprecedented drought. The U.S. Drought Monitor map makes it abundantly clear: If their prayers were answered, the answer was a resounding "No".
As Linus once remarked to Charlie Brown, "Hoping and praying should never be confused with working and studying."
Praying for it is not a plan. Well, not a good plan anyway.
