An English In Kentucky


















Friday August 25th 2017Tim Candler9


     Curiously enough when I was a schoolboy, I knew three people with the surname Harvey.  In those days of course we didn't call each other by our first names, no idea why but calling each other by first names was considered very poor form, definitely a no-no for clansmen who started their day by dunking themselves in a cold bath or face punishment. Instead we generally gave each other nicknames.



      Leaving aside the obvious arguments against giving storms names associated with people, it's going to be interesting to observe how the masters of division in our nation apportion blame for the consequences of Hurricane Harvey. I can almost hear the White House blaming Texas, New Orleans, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Seas, weather forecasters, the Constitution of the United States, both parties in the Senate, North Korea, China and the West coast of Africa.
