Weather Watch Out at Sea

Brendan Loy watches Tropical Depression Debby with more info here. Just a question, here. Debby? The potential destructive force of nature is named Debby? Couldn't weather forecasters contract some science fiction or fantasy writers and come up with some better names? I mean really! Hire Joss Whedon or something and come up with some interesting hurricane names, 'cuz hurricanes are definitely interesting.

Churchill once wrote a memo on choosing names for military operations--he remarked that no one shoul have to get killed in something like "Operation Bunnyhug." The same principle would seem to apply here..

David,
Exactly right. If I die in a natural disaster it better be by "Hell's Fury" not "Debby Does Dallas".
