Today was Day #1 of the Federal Government Shutdown.
Pictured here is rush hour in Washington, D.C.
In terms of raising revenue to pay down our national debt, solve challenging problems facing our nation, or increase our global competitiveness--I am not sure how this gets us there.
With around 800,000 people sitting at home or in Starbucks waiting to be recalled to work, about the only good thing you can say about the furlough is that it was easy to get a seat on the Metro.
Sad, but true. ;-)
