>>> what just might be a fitting metaphor for what's happening in washington, the historic ohio clock has been keeping time outside the u.s. senate chamber since 1817 . yesterday at 12:14 in the afternoon it stopped because the folks in charge of winding it are furloughed because of the shutdown. we can't find out the last time it stopped ticking because the folks in the senate historian's office have been furloughed as well and aren't around to take our questions. you
