Cancel for July 5: Great Northern Railway

JUL  5
G. N. RY.

I am in St. Paul, Minnesota this week.  St. Paul is the former capital of James J. Hill's railroad empire, built primarily through the Great Northern Railway.  James J. Hill's house in St. Paul, one of the great gilded age mansions, is now restored and open for tourism.  But as of July 4 weekend, the Minnesota State Government is shut down due to budget issues and the Hill house is closed.  What is going on with governing and budgets in the United States these days?
