Re: 2005 Names to be retired

They went ahead and retired the 5 storms Margie listed from that news article. Surprising for its omission is Emily.

The replacement names are Don, Katia (that's not close), Rina (still sounds awfully like Rita), Sean, and Whitney. Let's just hope we don't see a Whitney in 2011; even then, I'm sure the Whitney Houston jokes would be flying just like they did with Wilma & the Flintstones this year.
