no Instagram photos from the interior of the Smithsonian due to the SHUTDOWN... as a contractor... I will not be reimbursed for my time away from work


the ripple effect of Congress shutting down the Federal Government will be dramatic
more dramatic for some rather than others
yesterday I rode my bicycle down to the National Mall
DC as its Federal Buildings are sleepy
the streets are vacant

there are fewer food trucks on the street
there are fewer people lined up at the food trucks

the Starbucks location by my office has reduced their hours
non-Federal employees will see a serious backlash from the furlough

people are pay check to pay check
so... how will our economy respond to this
I can not imagine that this is a good thing
not good for anyone
