Yeah… it isn’t good. This whole Federal Government Shutdown thing has real impacts or real people. Among those being hurt are Upper Keys guides who make a living off bringing folks into the Everglades to hunt for reds and tarpon. Federal parks are closed due to the shutdown and that includes the Everglades and a host of other places around the country, just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past week and haven’t heard the news.
Turns out you can’t shut down the Federal Government and just keep the parts you like.
I’m hoping we can, collectively, shut down the grandstanding and get back to being a functional democracy again. Here’s to hoping.
