WSJ:

JOPLIN, Mo.—Ninety of the people unaccounted for after Sunday's devastating tornado have been located and are alive, officials said, as this hollowed-out city of 50,000 people began rebuilding its school system and making other tentative steps toward recovery.
What kind of person is this? A person who vanishes when a tornado hits and reappears only after a spell of being missing? We must, I think, turn to Hollywood to find the most meaningful definition for such a person...

Such a person? My best shot: A Dorother.


An example: A diner in a small town.
Trucker: Why is that man at the counter looking at me funny?
Waitress: Don't pay him no mind. He means no harm. He is a Dorother.
Trucker: I see. I see. Thanks for letting me know.
