It`s just so strange, that the government forgets to add those "without pay" words after they use the word furlough though, isn`t it?
Once, the term furlough conjured an image of a sailor on the town or a model prisoner rewarded with a visit home.
A furlough is no kind of solution to the problems that Maryland and other cash-strapped states are facing.
The "tax cut for everyone making less than 250K" doesn't amount to a hill of beans if you are un-employed and have no income and for folks like me it doesn't cover the salary lost to furloughs (though furlough is better than the alternative).
States, taking a furlough from the grim Arctic battle.
