The last week of September is always a bit chaotic in Washington, and this week will be particularly special. Beyond the Kavanaugh Supreme Court circus, we still don’t know
whether our president will shut down the government, whose budget year ends Sunday the 30th, if he doesn’t get his border wall money (spoiler: he won’t). And the Senate Armed Services Committee will hold a hearing
with the nominee to be the next commander of U.S. Southern Command. And look at all these events
coming up around town (I count 11):
