"For too long, too many officials have looked at the Savannah River as a boundary line, not as a mutually shared asset. Consequently, the economic rivalry between the state-run ports in Savannah and Charleston has been intense."
"What needs to happen is for Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue and South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford to seriously twist some arms and get the right people talking about a regional port. It's not a new idea. Instead, it's an idea that's lacked enough push in Atlanta and Columbia to get things moving on the coast."
