Government Shutdown: DC Startup Asks the Hard Questions
You may have heard in the news that the U.S. government is shutting down
, leaving many folks out of their office until Congress decides on a budget. There's a lot you can read out there about what that means, but all the news sites aren't asking any of the tough questions. In between working, sharing gifs, watching kitten
cams in the absence of the panda cam, and Instagramming picturs our dogs, we did ask the hard questions. With 97 percent of NASA on leave, who's watching for asteroids -- or aliens? Or, is Starbucks still open? If so, can I still not bring my gun? We just need to know.
Nick: Does this mean they will literally, or figuratively, do nothing?
Tony: Will John Boehner still be able to afford a spray tan?
Susan: WWJD - What Would Jon (Stewart) D0???
Ouzy: Who has the best #shutdown happy hour special?
Tucker: Do I still have to go to work today?
Zvi: Who is watching out for the asteroids?
Brian: Is Starbucks still open? And if so, can I bring my gun?
Bill: Has the looting started yet?
Alexandra: Why are mommy and daddy always fighting?
Ouzy: When will Pandacam be back on?
