New Orleans East has been on Government Shutdown since '05.

We pulled the plug, you guys. No more Karen, no more horrific D, no more government. The Saints have thrown opponents out of their own territories, enrapturing even David Vitter from resuming his duties. Twitter shut down gumbo-flavored Top Chef, and New Orleans dropkicked Tropical Something Karen into gorgeous fall-like weather. We still don't have a functioning governmental body but, well, the Pelicans look good. In today's Y@ Speak, we give a collective bird.
