First things first, this is not a political post. If you’re looking to read about the merits of the right and left arguing over immigration policies and budget battles, I’m not your guy.
So, thankfully, President Trump agreed to sign a bill that funded the government for the next 3 weeks. I say thankfully because, regardless of how you feel about any of this, I think we can all agree that the Coast Guard, FBI agents, food inspectors, air traffic controllers and hundreds of thousands of other government workers who were either furloughed or working without pay need to get back on the positive side of the payroll. They do some pretty important jobs, and I’d rather my approach into Hartsfield Jackson be guided by someone who isn’t distracted by the thought of losing their home.
