You are so right! Your post is a classic example of turning lemmons into lemonade. The last time the government closed in 1995, I worked on a project I was struggling with- and got it done! I was very upset that the government closed, from the viewpoint of national policy and the attitude of Congress towards public service. But from a personal viewpoint- I ended up being sort of glad (although this is the first time I admitted it….)
