  •  heh...there was a story (13+ / 0-)

    in Friday's NYT about the recent sandstorm in AZ, and the weather forecasters calling it by its Arabic name (one of the forecasters said they'd been using the Arabic term for ten years already).

    Apparently some of the more thuggish Arizonans objected to the use of an Arabic term.

    But:

    Not everyone was put out by the use of the term. David Wilson of Goodyear, Ariz., said those who wanted to avoid Arabic terms should steer clear of algebra, zero, pajamas and khaki, as well. “Let’s not become so ‘xenophobic’ that we forget to remember that we are citizens of the world, nor fail to recognize the contributions of all cultures to the richness of our language,” he wrote.
