The Wheelhouse Won't Shut Down

The federal government shutdown does not (directly) affect our weekly news roundtable The Wheelhouse. But it sure does give us something to talk about tomorrow. We'll be joined by Wheelhouse regulars to talk about this shutdown -- or, as Rep. David Schweikert called it on NPR's Morning Edition, a "government slowdown."

We'll also discuss other shutdowns, including the Metro-North fiasco and the UConn football team. And we'll talk with Colin McEnroe about his latest piece for Salon about the need for America to see someone pay for their misdeeds. And yes, it's pegged to Walter White.
