Gov’t shutdown: A tree falling in the woods?

Seriously, do you care one way or another?
===========

Have noted some asynchronous behavior in the past week or two…

Cable news pundits lead most broadcasts with deep concern: “It’s day (insert number here) of the partial government shutdown and no end in sight.”

Clarification: On MSNBC and CNN, the word “partial” is replaced by “Trump”

But, holiday chit-chit among friends and family has taken a much different track…

============

On no occasion has the topic come up in the normal course of conversation.

If prompted, I’ve gotten responses ranging from “What government shutdown?” … to “I hope it stays closed.”

Only one instance of anybody being impacted: A government lawyer who was appreciative that she was getting an additional week or two of vacation … knowing full well that she’d eventually receive back pack for the time off.

While the MSM is positioning the stalemate as the greatest disaster since Katrina, it’s not evident to me that the public is buying into the hysteria.

Hmmm….
