Government Shutdown?

The headline says, “U.S. Government Shutdown Looms . . .”

Being so close to the Capital, I have the dubious honor of a front row seat to observe the world’s greatest deliberative body’s (the U.S. Senate) frantic efforts to prevent the embarrassment of a government shutdown since 2013.

Two hours before the clock strikes midnight (the deadline when government funding runs out), a vote is scheduled in the U.S. Senate to limit debate. The flair for drama maybe admirable, but if and when the inability of sixty senators to reach an agreement is not.

Surely, there must be a better way for our government to operate. But until then, this is Reality TV at its finest.
