  19. I wonder if he has any idea how many people think that he is the cutest thing ever?

    Joanna, for those of us all over the world that don’t have access to what is truly happening there (beyond the CNN show and tiny slices on NY Times Online) please, please, please share with us your point of view and tell it like it is!!!

    With a big thank you in advance,

    • Hi Heather – The US government has shut down specific things in federal operation (like museums, national parks, bankruptcy filings in federal court) that it does not deem “essential” at this point. John Boener (Speaker) does not want to extend the debt ceiling, and the Republicans are still against a federally mandated health care system. They are trying to block more spending until an agreement is reached with the president. State operated things are running as usual. I have heard of school field trips to DC getting cancelled, and in 10 days the US government may be in default if they cannot reach an agreement.

  20. That is the most adorable thing ever! I had quite a few Little Lincecums come to my door on Halloween. They were so precious!
