Since the start of this month, the whole nation was engulfed in two topics: the government shutdown and the debt ceiling crisis. Stony Brook University is keeping a close watch on both topics since no matter what the outcomes of the crises are, it will have a huge impact on the university.

So, imagine this: two groups of people are arguing about something. Neither side is willing to concede anything to the other side, let alone try to reach a compromise. They won’t even meet with the other group of people because they are so entrenched in their own opinions. Does this sound like what you might find on an elementary school playground? Yes, it does. It’s also what is currently happening in the government of one of the most powerful nations on the face of this Earth.
