A confederacy of dunces

I was walking through Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, under the triumphal arch to the forces that held the Union together, and it dawned on me: we are in the midst of a sanity civil war.  That same restive region that brought us the cleaving joy of the civil war is again trying to tear our Union apart, but this time over their own lunacy.  And apparently Bill Moyers agrees: let's call the shutdown what it is: secession by other means.
