anthimeria: A scary angular outline of a face, the words "Still Watching" (Oracle: Still Watching)
The US government shutdown is actively impeding my research.

I keep needing to access information on native plant and animal species, especially distribution, and guess where a lot of that information is stored?  Right!  On websites run by institutions like the National Parks Service, or the Department of Agriculture.

Fortunately state-specific websites are still up and running, but the national sites being down is a PAIN.  I've already written my senators and representative, urging them to fight this thing, and now I'm really glad I did.
