Feds learn furlough status as shutdown looms

Federal employees began learning Friday whether they'll be forced to stay home if the government shuts down next week. Supervisors were tasked with informally telling employees today whether they are classified as "essential" or "nonessential," according to several federal-employee unions briefed by the Obama administration.

In politics, as in football, sometimes the best move is to punt. And even if you are not a sports fan or political junkie consider what Congress and the Washington football team have in common: So far this season both are losers.
