Best of both worlds -- use the generated variable names as table keys.

Let's revisit that assertion in July, when it's 92 in the shade and riding my 
bicycle, probably almost a calorie per square centimeter of infrared is 
hitting my skin, and there's a hurricane 400 miles away and we're deciding 
whether to stay or go.

Anyway, I'd like to gripe more, but I've gotta ride my bicycle to the post 
office and the gym, and I like to do it during daylight when it's above 70
