I'm kind of surprised by the number of times I've already encountered the Wiki blackout today. I had no idea I was using or encountering Wiki that much on a daily basis.

Craigslist, too. Apparently I spend way too much time shopping for things I never buy.

Imagine the loss... yeah, I get it.

Apparently the effects of the shutdown surprised even Wiki's top staff:

Strange bedfellows indeed.
Herb Kohl is a co-sponsor and Paul Ryan is opposed to it. Ron Johnson doesn't know how he feels about it.

WTF? Even Leahy is in on it. Are they living in a cave or is it just about cash?
Now what I find more startling is that Bernie Sanders has remained mum. That concerns me.
