US government crisis spawns unexpected windfall

3 10 2013

The budget crisis in Washington sent a pleasant surprise my way yesterday. Collette, my academic granddaughter, works for the US Fish & Wildlife Service… or at least did, but right now, with everything ground to a halt, she is on furlough. “I’m secretly crossing my fingers that it lasts a week or 2 so I can get caught up on life”, she said (not so secretly now Collette!), and this includes working on another cool MS from her superb thesis on reproductive patterns in zoo animals. Go Republicans!!!
