What It Really Means

So, as you have probably heard, the United States government is currently shut down.

Full-stop, out of service, gone fishing… however you want to put it, most government employees are not at work today.

I haven’t been paying attention to the “who” or the “why” or the “what,” so I will admit that I don’t really get what’s going on.

But I do get the effect of what’s going on. The government shutting down means my students are having an even harder time getting the funds they need to pay for school. It means Yosemite is empty. It means my friends can’t get a social security card for their recently adopted son.

And it means this:
