"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?

Clarification: had there not been a new budget, all government funding would have shut down until one was passed. That means NASA, museums, monuments, as well as day-to-day gov't employees.

Such as the Republicans who were blocking everything? No wonder they managed to come to an 'agreement!'

Oh, no, the members of Congress would still be paid. :) Just, you know, the little people who would suffer.

It's not the repulbicans blocking, it's harry Reid not taking it to vote.

Wasn't there supposted to be a budget established last year as required by law, but it wasn't done. Hpw could that have happened? It was a party majority, so how hard could thathave been? Why would they not want to pass a budget with a party majority?
Where is the leadership on this mess? Just wanna know.
