Too Much Hot Air

With the government shutting down today, I was reminded of this 1933 April 1st article in the Madison Capitol-Times about their state capitol building exploding because of a buildup of "large quantities of gas, generated through many weeks of verbose debate in the senate and assembly chambers"

I don't think any newspaper would publish a joke like this today, in the post-9/11 era, but it still seems appropriate.
