Shut Down

October 1, 2013

I don’t generally quote The Daily News, but in this case the image that’s sweeping the country sums up what America thinks.

According to the National Science Foundation, we at Kenyon can keep paying my technician and students–but the government doesn’t guarantee to reimburse us.  And the National Institutes of Health advises us to “check the national media” to find out when medical research commitments can be processed. I suppose our irreplaceable colonies of mice and monkeys may go unfed.

This happens once a decade or so; the third time I’ve experienced. We can only hope the culprits really get the boot, like they did last time.

    But Joan: You assured me that I should not lose sleep because there would be no shut-down. However, I think that Obamacare can still win if Reid handles well the piecemeal CR bills that will come from the House. He needs to amend each one with some poison pills, e. g. end farm subsidies, cap tax deductions for interest on mortgages, new revenues, etc. On the debt limit, I like the recent Times op-ed urging Obama to ignore it on the grounds that laws require him to pay US bills. Love, Dad

    You’re right, I underestimated the Republican stupidity. However, they’ll regret it.
