Update - the shut down is technically over as of today, but received a return letter from my Congressman, Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, in today's mail. In it he said he agreed with me, and has refused to accept his pay until all is settled. At least he seems to be listening to his constituents. Wish they all did.
