Governor urges Utahns to ask God to end the drought, because that's how we solve problems now

There’s a big drought menacing the Western U.S. these days. It’s gotten so bad that the governor of Utah has decided to get on the big red phone to Yahweh so that He might open the sluices in the terranean firmament and bless our lands with the precious, life-giving water He’s been withholding for only He knows what reason.

Even if I weren’t an agnostic of long standing, I’d be skeptical of these kinds of intercessional Hail Mary ducks that politicians like to throw around in lieu of effective action.
