Not long ago Rick Perry prayed for rain:
In the spring, Perry declared a 72-hour “Days of Prayer for Rain in Texas,” which has been followed by the persistence of one of the worst Texas droughts in history.
Perry’s prayer group has not worked at all:
The largest and most destructive fire was in Bastrop County, where a blaze burned 14,000 acres and grew to an estimated 16 miles long by the end of the day, said Mark Stanford, fire chief of the Texas Forest Service.
“It’s catastrophic,” Stanford said of the Bastrop County fire. “It’s a major natural disaster.”
