Will the last person out of the government please shut out the lights?

Will the last person out of the government please shut out the lights?



OK, maybe that’s a slight overreaction. But while we might not quite have a Planet of the Apes moment on our hands, the government shutdown is certainly not a good thing — for instance, we can’t access the Panda Cam. Oh, and we have incontrovertible evidence of our goverment’s total dysfunction along with a complete breakdown of the legislative process. But mostly, the panda!

So what can you do, especially if you’re a non-essential government worker? Best to just sit yourself down in front of the blank screen where the Panda Cam used to be and listen to our Government Shutdown Playlist. It won’t put you back to work, but it probably won’t make things any worse either. (Full Spotify playlist here.)
