My mother watched 5 full hours of news about the impending government shutdown. I am affected by it because it drove me crazier to listen to the same stuff over and over and over (ad infintum) all that time. NO, I couldn't leave; I was her caregiver for the evening.
PLEASE call your senator's and representative's offices and TELL someone what YOU want for this country. These cretins are supposed to be "public servants" and all I see is the public serving THEM. You'll find Washington and local area office numbers in the Government section of your phone book, right in the front (if you even have a phone book anymore).
