What is this about a sequester? Clearly the most important news in Washington, DC this week is the issue of duckling safety.

A mother duck and her nine ducklings were spotted across from the World Bank building on Pennsylvania Avenue yesterday. Concern for their safety quickly became the capital’s top priority.

A crowd quickly gathered, all deeply concerned about the duck family’s safety.

NBD, just a quick pit stop at the Department of the Interior. All in a day’s work for these super important ducks.

The ducklings were hesitant at first…
