Why Brouhaha?

I like a blog with a catchy title (see Boing Boing) , and what better name than a synonym for ‘sensation’?

It's an interesting word, too. Wiktionary notes that it came from the French but may have originated with the Hebrew barukh haba meaning ‘welcome’ or ‘blessed is he who comes’. So welcome to my brouhaha blog, and I’m hoping to generate some sensational, noisy and overexcited critical responses!
