FERGUSON: A well-earned break?

I’ll be taking my summer vacation next week. It won’t be a long one -- just 4 days at the beach -- but even that was something I agonized over before deciding to spend the money on it. Like many other Department of Defense workers, I’m in the middle of being furloughed one day a week right now, and based on the things our Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has been saying about the next fiscal year I’m afraid my job could soon disappear entirely.
