The Government Stumbles On

The government won’t shut down for at least 45 days. This is cause for some measure of relief, but not for joy. Authorization for an aid package for Ukraine was omitted. Several senators from both parties have promised to work to retain it, a commitment that doesn’t rise to the level of being reassuring. The fate of the world is vulnerable to the tyranny of a minority of nihilists, including ones in the Congress of the Untied States.
