FERGUSON: The sequestration blues

I don’t know of any context in which being sequestered is a good thing. Until recently I associated the term with being held prisoner in a hotel room while serving jury duty for some high profile case. Now, the word has an even worse connotation for me and a lot of other people in Middle Georgia as the federal government’s version of sequestering us might result in a 20 percent pay cut for the rest of this fiscal year.
