The name game.

Katrina. Rita. I realized today that we're potentially ruining a lot of very pretty names because they're being associated with death and terror. It makes me wonder where that tradition started, anyway. I mean, I'm sure it was for easier social reference and all, but why use attractive names? Maybe we're attracting the damn things with it. Ah, the tropical storm thinks, zey make me sound like ze beautiful contessa! I weel visit zem! I say we start naming them the way we really feel about them. Hurricane Skag. Hurricane Crackwhore. Maybe it'll make them stomp off in a snit. You never know.
