  •  But it worked, didn't it? (0+ / 0-)

    Got their name in all the papers and across the TeeVee. Both their name and "their" name.

    Great marketing ploy.

    And next storm everyone and their second cousins is going to compete to replicate it. It will be a farce. A bigger farce.

    Heck why doesn't the NOAA just handle it by lottery? Everyone who wants to name the storm buys a ticket with their chosen name. A random drawing determines the winner. The NOAA keeps the money to fund their service.

    Or just sell naming rights like they do stadiums. Here comes Winter Storm The Walking Dead!

    It'll work, I tell ya!
