On "Kristina"

Was listening to C-SPAN on the way into work today. Brian Lamb's guest was an old acquaintance of mine from Third Generation days, John Fund, of the Wall Street Journal.

Not surprisingly, the discussion was mainly on Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. At one point, the comment was made about the name of the storm, and how the Nation's Kristina vandenHeuvel was upset because her name was associated with such misery, and that she expected some "Right Winger" to make the association. Apparently, Rush Limbaugh and National Review Online's Jonah Goldberg did.

That's just not fair. It's only vandenHeuvel's socialist/Marxist agenda which is associated with unremitting misery of the kind being suffered in the Gulf Coast.

Don't worry about the storm's name. This is the first natural disaster in the history of man that is racist. If you watch the news, it only seems to have affected blacks in Orleans Parrish!
