I've just witnessed the "closure" of state parks first hand and the people are still there ignoring the signs that say it's closed over the place where you normally pay to gain entry.
They're using the parks for free is all.
I was one of them! hehehehe :)
If the government shutdown continues and results in the government defaulting on their lines of credit the next AdSense thread following this one will be titled "World Economy Collapse and AdSense Earnings".
Of course there will be no AdSense at that time, nor will the lights be on powering the servers that run WebmasterWorld so you might as well discuss it now before civilization takes a 200 year step backwards.
Wondering if Mad Max ever worried about his AdSense earnings...
