Happy October! Happy Shutdown Day!

Newslink from the land of the free and the home of the dysfunctional*--

"The capital’s rival clans find themselves at an impasse, unable to agree on a measure that will allow the American state to carry out its most basic functions. While the factions have come close to such a shutdown before, opponents of President Barack Obama’s embattled regime now appear prepared to allow the government to be shuttered over opposition to a controversial plan intended to bring the nation’s health care system in line with international standards."

* Not, it must be admitted, the only land of the free or home of the dysfunctional. The dysfunctional make their homes everywhere, and the free... well, that's debatable.
