No shoe shine or gym access?! Call in the National Guard… this is a true emergency.
Unintentionally amusing headline today, courtesy of PBS:
While the Congressional buildings will be open, a number of services will be discontinued or limited, including trash and recycling collection, responses to plumbing and electrical problems, and daily cleaning of restrooms. The Members’ dining room, gym, shoe shine stand and barber shops will be closed, along with the gift shop. The Congressional Post Office will remain open. If staffers are looking for a sandwich, they’ll have one option in the Longworth Cafeteria, and for limited hours.
No one warned me that Congress might have to pack their own lunches…
