Re: E-M:/ Anatomy of a Catastrophe

Just my two cents worth, but according to local TV (5, CBS, most popular), in the Saginaw/Midland/Bay City area,  the shut down of government means:
Oh my God, the casinos and lottery will close, and we might run out of liquor.  Deer hunters might not get to test their kill for T.B., and personal sales of vehicles might be delayed because the Secretary of State would be closed.  Car dealerships would not be effected.
While these might be important things to some in Mid-Michigan, is there really any wonder why we have gotten to this point?
I truly wish we could fire each and every elected official and start over.  What an embarrassment to our state.  They should all be ashamed.

If this is off topic when it is grist for all Independents, Democrats and Republicans, then what in the world is on topic?
Thanks for sending this classic.

Perhaps I am on the edge of being off-topic with this post, but with so much at risk for Michigan's environmental protection, with the Senate majority proposing to absolutely gut enforcement, drinking water programs, air quality programs, and leaders of all stripe seemingly unable to lead, it is a reasonable thing for us to discuss how did we get to this point and where do we go from here? 

This diary posting Anatomy of a Catastrophe under the pseudonym Hazen Pingree (the dead governor) is a good place to begin with the question, How did we get to this point?.  --David
