Another government shutdown. And the first of many budget deadlines in Washington between now and the end of the year. Doesn’t look good.
So, why is there a national park in Morton Grove, Illinois? The parks in Morton Grove are named after streets – Shermer Park is on Shermer Road, Mansfield Park is at the end of Mansfield Avenue, and so forth. This park is between Marion Avenue and National Avenue, so someone with a sense of humor named it National Park instead of Marion Park.
