Among other things, many of them worse, your local bar might run out of beer. And this is telling:
Meanwhile, budget negotiations on Tuesday remained at a standstill. No meetings transpired, and no offers were traded. Dayton left St. Paul to press his case for more revenue in St. Cloud, while Republican lawmakers dodged questions about whether they were going to present their first budget offer since the shutdown began.
Of course, in even pointing this out, I’m violating the etiquette rules laid down by James Taranto, who sees actually pointing out the consequences of government shutdowns as uncivil, almost as uncivil as accurately describing Republican Medicare plans.
