Many on the “right” are blasting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D. Nv.) for his refusal to allow any matters of importance to come to the Senate floor during the “government shutdown”. But, I am here to tell you that nothing could be further from the truth.
[t]hrough unanimous consent agreements …, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) passed resolutions, including S.Res. 266, which designates Oct. 7-13 National Chess Week. [emphasis supplied]
See, you doubting Thomases, the government may be shut down, but we can take solace in the fact that we have a National Chess Week.
