With another storm set to dump up to 16 inches more on the nation’s capital Tuesday and Wednesday, the federal government will be closed for a second straight day tomorrow.
Has anyone noticed?
Less than a month after the Congress scuttled health care — after a full year of debate — does anybody care?
There actually could be some environmental benefits. Less hot air from the halls of Congress may allow all that fresh snow to linger awhile and reduce global warming a bit to boot. That, of course, could be more progress on energy policy than our elected officials have made in years.
I hope they did remember to turn off the lights before they left.
