Day 5 of the Government shutdown here in Minnesota.
This morning I feared that the earth had left it's orbit and was hurtling towards the sun. It turns out that it had gotten chilly over night and my furnace had just come on.
Still have yet to see any dead bodies laying in the gutters, but I live in the hated suburbia. I'm sure that there are huge funeral pyres where they are burning the dead in the city. In fact, I thought that I had glimpsed one of those pyres to the south, but it turned out to be nothing more than fireworks.
How anyone could be celebrating "Patriotism" when the Government doesn't have all of the money that it wants is sickening. More later...if I'm still surviving.
