Casinos are open, museums are closed

You always know that something big is going on in your state if CNN.com is covering it. At this moment, the vast majority of state-run offices, parks, licensing centers and museums are now closed. All staff who are employed to work in the jobs that keep those locations going have been given a day off without pay. I’m sure for most it is a very mixed blessing.

Above Average Jane has complied a nice round-up of some of the coverage about the shut down, as well as a wry comment that touches on how things really work around here, “Of course, some complicated gymnastics allowed the casinos to stay open — we must have our priorities.”
