Hurricane Equality

Hurricane Katrina. She's the current one.

In the past, we've had Charley, Frances, Hugo and Andrew. Why don't we have any really ethnic hurricane names? I'd like see these in the future:

How about a hurricane named after our African brothers and sisters? Hurricane Shanequa, Hurricane Tyrone, Hurricane Khadija.

Or a little Jewish wind and rain? Hurricane Moishe, Hurricane Menachem, Hurricane Miriam.

And where are the Italian hurricanes? Hurricane Guido, Hurricane Annunziata, Hurricane Angelo.

Maybe a little Latin flavor? Hurricane Julio, Hurricane Javier, Hurricane Juanita.

French? Hurricane Amelie, Hurricane Pierre, Hurricane Coco Chanel?

I'd welcome any one of those, but I can do without ever seeing Hurricane Hitler, Sadam or Osama.

There has been a Hurricane Claudette. Does that count?
