Swing by the aptly-named “isthegovernmentshutdown.com” to check out whether the government is shut down or whether the government is NOT shut down. If the site says YES in red letters, then YES, the government is still shut down. I don’t know what it says if the government is NOT shut down – maybe “NO” but I’m just guessing – and I, for one, can’t wait to see what it actually says when the government is NOT shut down.
There’s also a feature that lets you see tweets from members of Congress. Bo-ring! The real excitement is in the YES or (maybe) NO message at the top of the site. Keep refreshing the page, everyone!
