“I couldn't live a week without a private library
- indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor
before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.” ― H.P. Lovecraft

Whistling In The Graveyard: September 11, 2005

Awright, maybe it's just me, but does anyone else think it was in bad taste to name a hurricane Ophelia?

For those of you that aren't familliar with the literary character (that being all but about five or six of you) Ophelia is a character from Shakespeare's Hamlet. She was driven mad and she drowned herself. They have named a hurricane, the first hurricane after the most deadly, devastating hurricane to hit American shores since they started recording them, after a famous drowning victim.

Am I alone in thinking that's kinda fucked up?
