Pray for rain?

SCIENCE? Who needs it. Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has declared a weekend of prayer to solve the state's deepening drought problem. "WHEREAS, the state of Texas is in the midst of an exceptional drought, with some parts of the state receiving no significant rainfall for almost three months ... the three-day period from Friday, April 22, 2011, to Sunday, April 24, 2011, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas. I urge Texans of all faiths and traditions to offer prayers on that day for the healing of our land, the rebuilding of our communities and the restoration of our normal and robust way of life.” No, this is not satire from The Onion. It's an official proclamation issued by the governor's office. You just can't make this stuff up.
