Grand Canyon RRR & the government shutdown
We have had reservations for some months to drive out to the Grand Canyon this coming weekend to meet a group of friends from New Mexico to do a Canyon double crossing. We had reserved an RV in Flagstaff to drive up to the South Rim, but have cancelled the reservation given that the political rhetoric over the shutdown shows no signs of abating. All in all the arguments of the GOP seem reminiscent of the rhetoric used in the run up to the second gulf war. Is this about Romney-Care ..er Obama-care ..or the deficit /debt limit or what? I feel for the small business owner in Flagstaff that would have been renting the RV to us next weekend, this family is bleeding while Washington puts its dysfunction on display.
