Hallelujah. Congress and the President have worked out their budget issues, and the government won't shut down. A shutdown would have cost the American people a lot of money and put a lot of people in some sticky financial situations. But the thing that gets me is the closing of national parks. I'm running a race on Sunday that would have been canceled because the National Park Service runs the park at the starting line. I was more upset about that than the possibility of losing pay! That woulda been two months of procrastination and one month of actual training down the toilet!
