What’s in a name?

Michael ChertoffI’m apparently in a complaining mood today (although I feel just fine). Did anybody see the news conference with Michael Chertoff, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. This is the guy responsible for protecting us, and he could NOT pronounce the name of the bloody hurricane that destroyed portions of the gulf coast this week.

Katarina? No, Mr. Secretary.

Katrinia? No, Mr. Secretary.

This doesn’t engender a great deal of confidence, IMO. Where is John Wayne when we need him?


  1. I don’t care what they call it — just get the damn Marines in there. (On a convaluted sidenote, as someone who attends a church called Westminster, I’m always amazed when I hear a longtime member call it Westmin-is-ter.)
