Let us tell you the information you need to register and cast a ballot in D.C.

Eleven years later, it’s difficult to know how best to mark Sept. 11, 2001 and remember its victims. It’s much easier, though, to see that the Federal Aviation Administration’s plan to change the names of waypoint stops for planes approaching Reagan National Airport to patriotic words like “WEEDU” and “TRUPS” isn’t the best. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood explains:

Aircraft flying the Freedom route to National from the northwest pass through waypoints named “WEEEE,” “WLLLL,” “NEVVR,” “FORGT” and “SEP11.” Those flying the Troops route from the southwest pass through waypoints named “USAAY,” “WEEDU,” “SUPRT,” “OOURR” and “TRUPS.” Depending on the runway configuration, aircraft might also pass through waypoints named “STAND” and “TOGETHER” or “LETZZ,” “RLLLL,” “VCTRY” and “HEROO.”

What better way to remember 9/11’s tragic legacy than with words that look like they were butt-typed on a broken keyboard?
