FYI: "The Shutdown Is a Sideshow. Debt Is the Threat."

Of course the shutdown is a cynical political sideshow. (But let's not forget who's culpable here, OK?)  Niall Ferguson has the grim reminder that the real problem is unsustainable debt.  Today's quote of the day comes from it:
"Only a fantasist can seriously believe 'this is not a crisis.'"
Unfortunately, the current political "leadership" is full of fantasists, fabulists, and willful deniers of reality.
