It's a Latin Conspiracy!

Dear Al Gore,

Did you know that your name is latin for coldness? Is that a coincidence (or as my grandfather would say, a coinkidinkle), or did you change your name when you first realized that the climate was changing? It's quite handy for the nobel prize winner, for a powerpoint thinly disguised as a documentary no less, to have a name related to the weather. Storm Field and Dallas Raines were already taken and were perhaps a bit too obvious, so I bet your Harvard nerdiness broke through that calm demeanor and suggested that you take a name that would make other nerds who took latin in high school proud. If that is the case, bravo. Very subtle, very smart.

Cheers,
Cara (latin for dear, spanish for face; which do you think i prefer?)
