Whew!  We've dodged a bullet!  Congress got off it's collective rump and agreed on a resolution to reopen the government and forestall defaulting on the national debt until after the first of the year, but has the damage already been done?  At the least  we've damaged our reputation among the countries of the world and have given our rivals, such as China, an advantage.  The government shutdown hurt federal employees and contractors who have been essentially laid off the past three weeks without pay.  It inconvenienced travellers who had to change their plans to visit our national parks and monuments.  Join Ken and Beth as they discuss the reopening of the government and the events leading up to the shutdown and impass in Congress.  Call in and speak with the hosts 347-215-9971 or join us in our online chatroom.  We would like to hear what you have to say,  Thursday Oct. 17th, 9:30PM PDT
