Shutdown over: What next?
90 year old veteran reacts to end of Shutdown
I cannot believe other than that we've not seen the end of our government's inefficiency, that all the abuses of recent years, the contempt of citizens in these past few weeks won't be repeated in the coming months. Tired of the rhetoric, the lies fed us by silver-tongued sophists, I'm tempted to tune out all political news.
On a waiting list for one of the Honor Flights to the World War II monument on the mall in Washington -- tentatively scheduled for spring 2014 -- I wonder if national monuments will again be shutdown by then, if we won't once more be mired in a national crisis.
