Furloughs or fire drills?

Like Hollywood superheroes, federal workers managed to escape going over the fiscal cliff.

Feds as roadkill

Asteroid strike, furloughs - it's always something

Can you take vacation if you are furloughed? Answer: No! What about sick leave? Only if you promise to die to prove you are really sick. And to cap out the week, an asteroid the size of a small skyscraper is coming very close to Earth on Friday, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
