What matters about this person in relation to this story is their age, and that is why CNN leads off with this detail about the deceased from Hurricane Ian.
Again, the qualifying wind speeds for a hurricane are 74 MPH.
And as we know, the number is fateful.
Killing = 74
Weapon = 74
Nuclear = 74
Stabbing = 74 (Ides of March on 74th day of year)
Energy = 74
English = 74
Gematria = 74
And don’t forget the Comedy Central joke about “if you were anymore Jewish, you would control the weather.” Of course, Jewish equates to 74 just the same.
