Should the federal government shutdown continue for several more days, we're sure you'll have specific questions about how the government is working — or not working. Perhaps you're a federal worker, or maybe you rely on a government service. We want to know how the shutdown is affecting you and what you're worried about, or if you've been effected by past shutdowns and have wisdom to share. We could use a little free wisdom here in Washington. <a href="http://help.npr.org/npr/includes/customer/npr/custforms/contactus.aspx">Click here</a> to tell us your shutdown story , select "All Things Considered" in the drop down, and put "Shutdown Question" in your subject line.
