Checking the clock this morning I see right about now I was supposed to be passing Ooh-Aah Point in the Grand Canyon on a planned rim-to-rim-to-rim hike with my brother. Instead...well, you know. Every time I read about the shutdown, I find myself thinking it's junior high all over again, only with trillion-dollar budgets and nuclear missiles. Kudos to Republicans for threatening to blow up the world if they don't get what they want. What could possibly go wrong with that?
