This is good news in a very loose sense of the phrase "good news"…
Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday that the Senate will accept a bill from the Republican-led House to fund the government for two additional weeks, likely averting the government shutdown that would otherwise have come Friday.
The bill will likely pass the House Tuesday afternoon and, according to Reid, move to the Senate within the next two days. The White House has signaled that it will then be signed by President Obama.
Excellent! This gives us all an extra two weeks get our personal business taken care of before hordes of angry governmentless people hit the streets with Molotov cocktails and diesel-powered weed wackers.
Only thing is, what if we've already mercy-killed our families to get a jump on things?
