The name Katrina is being retired, just like an airline flight number when there is a accident. Like it's gonna make any freaking difference  Yeah sure

this is the stupid crap that buerecrats do ???

The names of particularly destructive hurricanes have always been retired, especially where there has been loss of life. I think the only reason that it's being reported this year is because of Katrina's almost total destruction of some areas and the fact that it's the most destructive storm to come ashore in the US for a long while.
Hurricane Fabian (2003) hit Bermuda and 4 people were lost, so that name was retired as well. But because it didn't affect U.S. interests the name's retirement didn't get reported as widely.

I'm sure Cynthia McKinney will be around any moment to insist that a more "black" name beginning with K be substituted....

Remember that deal? Wasn't that Sheila Jackson Lee? Can't remember. But even the names of freaking hurricanes became a perceived racial slight. Beam me up...

They've been doing this since the sixties with destructive hurricanes. What's the big deal?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was Sheila Jackson Lee who said she wanted more "black names" used for hurricanes.

Live down here in Hurricane Alley through a few seasons, and you'll understand  Wink

Anyway, amen to not ever having to hear about another Wilma. That was an experience I hope I'll never have to endure again...

The name shall never be the same, but I am sure you will have to suffer through a storm of the same or greater magnatude.

Well, duh. Of course the name gets retired. CNN is only posting this story now?

Perhaps K'martika or Kashica.

I'm sure they do a lot of things that are even less important. It's not like the name change is sucking down tax payer dollars...
