And Himmicanes, Too

My brother-from-another-mother who was born in India has this to say on the topic of hurricanes:

And what is up with giving these hurricanes fine christian names. How come
there is never a hurricane named Abdullah, or one named Venkatesan
Balasubramanium? (once it comes ashore, it can be called Hurricane Venky.)
Most of these hurricanes are of foreign origin anyways.

I can also see why Venkatesan Balasubramanium is a bad choice for CNN. But
c'mon, Hurricane Patel or Hurricane Kumar, or Hurricane Hussein are all very
pronouncable names, and its very likely that once they come ashore, they
will simply settle into suburban America and be good citizens, rather than
wreak havoc.
