A contest

The stuff going on down South needs a name. I'm sick of saying Katrina, because at this point, it's not the hurricane I'm worried about, but the human successes and human failures. I don't want to talk about the Gulf, since we've got reconstruction going on in two Gulf's right now.

Let's stay away from names like "Floodgate," anything of the form "The Big ___y," or other puns about New Orleans. That's not funny.

Years from now, no one will call this "the Gulf flooding" or whatever. It needs a real name.

I will donate cash to the charity of choice of whoever suggests the winning name.
