There's a big drought in the south right now. I'm in Atlanta and today on the dinner table there was a fancy note that said "Atlanta is in the midst of a severe drought. In order to conserve water please ask if you would like water."

Things wrong with this statement:

•There was ice tea on the table, which is almost entirely water......
•Each person in the room used more water taking a shower that morning than all the water the group could possibly drink....
•Policy option.....why not just temporarily raise the price of water and put a moratorium on the sales tax in exchange....

Seriously it was bizarre. Why is price never an option? Now let me go take a shower.

perhaps a rate increase would keep a boy I know from leaving the water on while he brushes his teeth... :)
