Half Open, Half Closed

The government is still shut down, though the FDA is still about half-open.  The question is: which half?

Now I fully understand this may sound like hippie nonsense, but before the incense candles, spirit crystals, and kumbaya songs come out, let me further explain this thought. Continue reading
