#6076: Oh, they shut down the government?

Who noticed? Which is to say, who--out of all the people who are not dependent on it--noticed that the government shut down? I certainly did not.

The people responsible must go to jail. NSA was ordered to retain surveillance data. NSA deleted it. Whoever ordered that should be hauled away in handcuffs soonest. Period.

"That would be, in your words, 'a goddamned pity.'" Obscure quote from obscure novel The Omega Threat. It was meant sarcastically, and I mean it the same way in reaction to this headline: "Every Single One of Marvel’s GLAAD Award-Nominated Comics Has Been Cancelled".

Apparently this is day TWO of the shutdown. Again, I didn't notice.

Democrats and their voters. 100% true and accurate.

Sunday off. Feels almost like I had Saturday off; today I handled 15 contacts. Mostly I read Knights of the Dinner Table.

Mrs. Fungus and I went out and had conveyor sushi. When we got home I saw that volume 10 of Kimi ni Todoke had arrived. Just 10, not 11 or 12, which I ordered at the same time. WTF.

Oh well. Have to backtrack a bit and read probably 8 and 9 before I'll understand what's going on in 10, anyway.
