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.

I Am Serious, And Don't Call Me Shirley: There's just one air traffic controller on duty at Reagan National Airport between midnight and 6 a.m., and he fell asleep Wednesday night?

We Need Some Money: Turns out having large numbers of people out of work is bad for municipal finances. (Who would have guessed?)

Morning, readers. Let us celebrate the fact that Friday is upon us.
That wasn't a rumble in your stomach this morning: That was an earthquake. The 3.6 magnitude quake struck at 5:04 a.m., and its epicenter was in the Germantown-Gaithersburg area. The quake was the largest to hit the area since the U.S. Geological Survey created a [...]
Good morning, people! Hope everyone had a wonderfully relaxing weekend, and you're not sitting somewhere in your office sunburned and wondering what happened exactly. Either way, it's almost the weekend again! The District's looking at a high of 101 degrees for today. Don't worry, it won't get there until about 3 p.m., and it'll only [...]

The messiah returned yesterday, arriving in the form of a 21-year-old man with a buzzed head and a 99 mph fastball. And you thought he would show up on a donkey? Stephen Strasburg made his major [...]
The Fates of today's aviation
Capricious and fond of frustration
As vay-cay winds down
You're due back in town
