Best Name EVER

While watching 48 hour coverage of Hurricane Irene [sigh - because we had NO choice] they had to occasionally swap out weather forecasters in order to give them all a bit of a break to go eat, sleep and potty.

For the first time, while watching ABC news, we were gifted with the most awesome meteorologist.

His name is Roosevelt Leftwich.

This is him:
I think more people should be named Roosevelt and be as cute and informative as Mr. Leftwich.

He made the news coverage more palpable at 2 am when we kept seeing the same images [and non damage] we had been watching for hours.

Bravo!

I've got an uncle named Franklin Delano. Those two should be friends!

Our local weather man has a very ordinary name - and may not even be the weather man any more (I never watch tv news/weather). I knew (of) him long before he got on tv because he was the meteorologist at the airport my dad flew out of. Now he is a local political candidate and happily, for the party we support.

I too am getting tired of the non-stop coverage although I am REALLY glad we're long out of Vermont. I do feel sorry for everyone suffering through the after effects of Irene (including friends in PA) but I guess now we'll be hearing about the up and coming Katia instead. I picked a really good summer to explore the East Coast, didn't I?

He has a good strong name, not a wussy name. Love it!
