"Dear friends of the Earth Observatory,
As you may know, the U.S. government is facing a shutdown due to the
end of funding. As a result, the Earth Observatory site will not be
updated for the duration of that shutdown (and may not be available at
all) which may begin tomorrow, Saturday April 9.
We hope that there will be a quick resolution to this crisis and we
thank you for your continued patronage."
No, seriously, wtf guys? Is this GOP/tea party shit?
