Ding Darling Day Activities = Victim Of Government Shutdown

I wondered if there might be a story or two on comics-related outcomes due to the government shutdown of non-essential operations caused by what I'm sure is a principled battle of great men and women over lofty political ideas (I haven't looked into it yet). I'm sure there might be a Library Of Congress-related outcome, but the first such story to actually come out on the wires is the cancellation of this year's Ding Darling Day activities at Neal Smith Wildlife Refuge in Jasper County, Iowa. Jay Darling was a prominent editorial cartoonist and a leader in the early conservation movement.
