On the dc shutdown, what would be called?

Give us a tweet.

We are looking for creative answers.

And we are looking for casting suggestions.

I will do first look photos.

We will start in australia were more than 80 bushfires continue to burn across the eastern part of the country.

Sydney has been mostly unaffected but as did dissent on the city.

Just descend on the city.

I thought of charlton heston.

Except this is reality.

Let's go to washington -- government employees in all shapes and sizes continue to head back to work after almost two weeks of being furloughed.

A specialist from the curator's office of the u.s. capitol wines the ohio clock that sits outside the senate chamber.

Very cool.

The clock stopped working during the shutdown because there were no qualified employees to wind it up.

Can we quantify the government loss from the shutdown or is that an exercise in futility?

I will defer tojeff on this one but there is direct and indirect impact.

The biggest thing about the shutdown is the loss of confidence in the government.

That's the part you cannot quantify but that's the part that will last the most.

They had to rewind the clock.

The battle for asb surfing title continues in portugal.

The competition was in shock when the 11 time world champion was eliminated after being defeated by a 16-year-old newcomer.

Jacob wilcox is his name.

The finals will be held in hawaii in december.

That's one of our producers.

You look like a surfer.
