Bright & Early: The High Road Edition

Good morning, Nashville. If you’ve been hanging around Nashville long enough, you may remember that time that Georgia sought to annex part of our state in order to gain access to the Tennessee River because they were running out of water. This near-invasion spawned some good stories like the Chattanooga mayor shipping a truckload of bottled water to the Georgia state capitol building, but it was ultimately unsuccessful. And anyway, they’re back at it. Due to more anticipated water shortages, Georgia says they’d like to access the river without hacking off part of our state this time and could pump as much as 400 million gallons out of it per day without disturbing anyone. After all, they point out, no one actually owns a river.
