Day of wrath and roses looming

Let's pick a noun to retire from all stories and heds about tropical weather. No doubt you have nominees. Here's mine:

Charlotte teen escapes Dean's wrath

City man dodges
Dean's wrath

Mexico, Belize brace for
Dean's wrath

Jamaica feels
Dean's wrath

Jamaica smashed by wrath of Dean

Travel plans altered by
wrath of Dean

The wrath of Dean was even felt in space, where Endeavour astronauts scaled back their last spacewalk yesterday and planned to land the space shuttle Tuesday, a day early, NASA said.

A boat sinks in Fort de France, Martinique, after it takes on water from Hurricane Dean's wrath. The storm was Category 3 when it hit land.

While much of the island escaped Hurricane Dean's wrath, the southernmost tip was not so lucky.

CancĂșn still could face winds with tropical storm force - forecast to extend over about 75,000 square miles, about the size of Nebraska or South Dakota - but city officials told the public Monday night that the area should escape the worst of Dean's wrath.

Strong winds blew down trees in southern towns near the Haitian border but the country was largely spared Dean's wrath.

We are a self-important species, aren't we? We can't handle the fact that Dean really doesn't care.

You missed "Foul-mouthed Dean quits" which, delightfully, appeared the same day ...

Let's put this in perspective:

Secretary: The dean is furious! He's waxing wroth!
Professor Wagstaff: Is Roth out there, too? Tell Roth to wax the dean for awhile.
