Thanks Kate. It was floating around in my head during all the coverage of the current situation so glad u suggested boos on it because I was able to put it together in the memory bank, so to speak.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us. I hadn't really thought about the effect it would have on museums and galleries.

I wonder what affect a shutdown would have on the forthcoming shuttle launch. What are classed as non-essential roles I wonder?

Interesting. Thanks again.

Thanks for listening to the boo. It was very strange. For me, a cultural experience was ruined, but I am sure others could tell of more critical deprivations. :D If it happens again, I hope you aren't too inconvenienced.

Thank you for sharing this memory of the gov't shutdown. It's incredible how life practically STOPS or becomes delayed or botched when the government does something that affects EVERYONE! In your case, I'm impressed that you actually were able to see the exhibit, but you were plagued with having to be in a crowd like being at a concert!

Great boo!
