I always thought that I would be the first one to welcome anarchy.
Turns out anarchy is best viewed from quite a distance. I wasn't that concerned over the government shut down. I figured I wouldn't be effected, although I do have empathy for those employees that are furloughed. Other than having my passport renewal delayed a bit, I didn't give it much thought... until I realized that I work for a law firm that has a case pending in just about every federal court in the country.
OK so now I am concerned, and confused. I found this resource which was of minimal help to me right now but could be an enormous help in the future.
