All the hype about the so called disaster and we can look forward to the debt ceiling debates which are right around the corner. This old mans answer: tell congress to take the month of December off. We will survive the 'ditch' (not 'cliff') just fine. When the debt ceiling arguments begin tell congress to take a few more months off. We will also survive an indefinite 'continuing resolution' just fine too. Matter of fact, the country will be better off.
