The Shutdown Diaries

They say a government shutdown will affect all of us—but we want to see some proof. Us here at Newsweek/Daily Beast will be collecting your stories, photos, and tweets that demonstrate how a shutdown is altering Americans’ daily lives. To participate, simply send in your reports to newsweekshutdown@gmail.com, or tweet with the hashtag #shutdowndiaries. We’ll be compiling throughout the weekend, or for however long it takes for President Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to come to an agreement.

A speedy, smart summary of news and must-reads from across the web and around the Tumblrverse, brought to you by The Daily Beast.
