To be a Weather Channel newscaster must be fun. These intrepid souls fly all over the country and into the heart of meteorological disasters. They are paid to face the fury of the storm instead of evacuating with the masses. They stand against the onslaught of hurricane-force rain and storm surges, protected only by a thin layer of colorful GoreTex, enduring gale force winds as they explain how bad it is out there. Heck, we could do that. Several weeks of watching hurricanes Katrina, Ophelia and now Rita have left us hankering for a piece of the news coverage action.

o7THIS WEEK: Why does God allow such horrors as Hurricane Katrina to happen? f7 "Why does God allow" anything is not the right question. The truth is, it's a jungle out here, and it has been ever since Adam and Eve were tossed out of the Garden of Eden. There are numerous interpretations of the Genesis stories, but the "spin" I personally put on the Adam and Eve story is that once we (in the persons of Adam and Eve) were ejected from the Garden, we became subject to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune regardless of how strong or how weak our faith.

For all the surfers out there with fingers crossed that Hurricane John would drum up some fantastic waves off local shores, here's some disappointing news: The giant swell isn't coming. The hurricane that beat up the Mexican resort towns on the Baja Peninsula weakened, and forecasters said all it would bring is stormy skies. As of Monday, John's strength was fading and it had become a tropical depression. Whenever there's a hurricane off the Pacific Ocean, locals start talking that the surf will pick up, said Charlie Fox, head forecaster for Surfline.

A year after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, its effects are still being felt — even in Huntington Beach. About 60 protesters gathered Aug. 31 on Pacific Coast Highway south of Main Street to criticize what they consider a lack of government assistance since the disaster. The group, which was organized by Huntington Beach resident Jay Funsch, dressed for a New Orleans style funeral. Adorned with feathered masks and plastic bead necklaces, the protesters carried a few black coffins, which Funsch built in his garage, in a funeral march intended to honor those whose lives were lost or affected by the storm and to call into question government response they view as partly responsible for the catastrophic losses.

You remembered. I'm touched. Someone asked that I reprise a column I did years ago on hurricanes, how they are named and what all those categories mean. If nothing else, it's definitely timely. Thus, for your meteorological pleasure, I give you, Everything You've Always Wanted to Know About Hurricanes But Were Too Wet to Ask. We begin. Where do the names come from? I have no idea. Just kidding. They come from the United Nations, of all places, which runs the World Meteorological Organization.
