Government shutdown.

Government shutdown.  Call me perverse, but I think those words have a beautiful ring to them.  But I'm disappointed that the government has decided that two thirds of all federal employees are “essential”, and therefore remain on the job even during a “shutdown.”   So it's really more like a “government slowdown” – but still an improvement, from where I sit, from “government that steals all my money and spends it on utterly stupid things.”

Update: the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up by over 50 points as I write this.  Apparently Wall Street is happy with a government shutdown, too :)
