the shutdown that wasn't

yay, the government didn't shut down!!!

boo, they avoided a shutdown by making a really bad deal. part of me wants to yell about the latest example of how president obama is such a terrible negotiator. but in the end i think yglesias is right on this one.

in any case, not having a shutdown is still good. and now i can get my tax refund! except that apparently i already got my refund a week ago. i just didn't notice that a U.S. treasury wire transfer had happened until i checked my account balance yesterday. in these direct deposit days, i guess i need to pay more attention.
