Danger Room-Most Dangerous Week Ever

Most Dangerous Week Ever
* By Spencer Ackerman
We’re not waiting around until midnight, when the government is scheduled to shut down due to a budget impasse that gets dumber and more petty the closer you examine it. If you’re fighting a war right now, you’ve still got to fight; you just won’t be paid, in all likelihood. The rest of us can look forward to backlogs in most things the military has in development, like upgrades to GPS satellites. All this at a time when the Navy masters the art of crippling ships with lasers. Tsk tsk.
