Good Tidings of Great Joy

I read it on the internet, so it must be true, that

the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. attorneys, the Bureau of Prisons and department criminal activities go forward during a shutdown. The Office of Special Counsel, under special funding, also goes forward, so Robert Mueller III’s investigative team does not get furloughed.

Meanwhile, I have to say, I don’t know about you, but it really doesn’t feel much like Christmas this year, does it?

Barack Obama, I’ll have a blue Christmas without you.
