"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?

The 'problem' (as I see it) is that 'we' (American Government) are spending more than we take in. There's lots of fingers to point and blame... but fact is... we're selling our souls to the people who hold the I.O.U.'s for funding the ridiculous deficit (which is due to a hell of a lot more than the War in Iraq...)

Meanwhile... we continue to spend on various stuff that has been promised to all kinds of 'important' projects over the years. We'll soon find ourselves like all those South American countries 30 years ago... with meaningless 'currency'.

Whatever the reason... I'm really ready to go live in a cave until the Chinese take over (the reported major purchasers of U.S. Treasury debt).
