PA Government Shutdown

As we reported Monday,

Pa. Awakes to Partial State Shutdown
The Associated Press

HARRISBURG, Pa. - The state museums didn't open Monday. State parks were closed to visitors at the height of the summer tourism season, and many state services were idle because of a government shutdown that kept about 24,000 workers off the job.

Gov. Ed Rendell shut down the Pennsylvania government late Sunday over a budget stalemate with the Legislature that partly hinges on his e
nergy plan for the state.
The shutdown of Pennsylvania state services by Gov. Rendell reminds me of the old joke:
Q: What is orange and sleeps seven?

A: A PennDOT truck.
