01/13 - Georgia governor asleep at the switch > Opinion

I can't say I was surprised to see columnist Jim Wooten ("Quick, costly solutions not Perdue's style," @issue, Jan. 8) making apologies for Gov. Sonny Perdue's lack of speedy leadership. And I've read his column enough to know that if Perdue were a Democrat, Wooten would be howling about our do-nothing governor.

But the guv must have hit a new low if Wooten feels the need to extol the virtues of having a governor asleep at the switch. Georgia is crying out for leadership on so many issues: water supply, transportation, education and even Jekyll Island. But where's Sonny? Perhaps gone fishing, but who really knows?

I hope we get some serious leadership soon, because like Humpty Dumpty, all the king's horses and all the king's men won't be able to put Georgia's growth egg back together again after it falls.
