Blocking WWII vets from the wide open WWII memorial also shows a certain level of class. All monuments and park properties were kept open last time.
During the 26 days of both 1995-1996 shutdowns, national parks were closed. The Smithsonian museums were also closed. I'm not sure about monuments and memorials in DC, however.

I agree that putting up traffic cones and blocking overlooks is ridiculous. In DC, there are biking and walking trails on lands maintained by the National Park Service which are officially closed, but people are ignoring the signs and are going around the makeshift barriers.

Yes. Today I mentioned to DW (who moved her $ yesterday) "did you know the stock market is mocking you". But she didn't care. The only timing she is interested in is waiting until the new debt limit is passed. She has so little confidence in Congress

I have always enjoyed market-timing and picking individual stocks in my spare time, when I am not otherwise occupied at the craps table at Caeser's, train dodging, alligator wrestling, base jumping, disarming bombs or running with scissors.
