n.— «All it took was a pre-existing spike in the crime rate and a new word—”Katrician”—that turns 120,000 men, women and children into the enemy. If Pruett’s new label sticks it could also alter the meaning of “Houston.” Katricians, of course, are Katrina evacuees.» —“What’s in a name?” Houston Chronicle (Texas) Sept. 23, 2006.
