Yes.. I am surprised. The United States Census Bureau employs thousands of people in many many different fields of work. I have no doubt. Math
specialists..... Statistics people who live for it ....and data collectors who go pick it all up. Those people I can see being home right now. There
is a shutdown on, after all.
What part of the website...and not the site itself, of course, just menu options...costs extra to require shutting down?
Is there something about the display of 2010 Census data I could see last week which cost extra money to see this week..and hence..required shut down
for lack of funding? If the WHOLE SITE and server were down, Okay I could say it's hardware shutdown because that DOES cost money. A menu option and
static web page? That does not cost money on a daily basis..and hence, has no requirement to be shut down for economic reasons.
Only spiteful ones....and spite is the order of the day.
