In this photo taken Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, Marcelo del Canto, a budget analyst for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in Rockville, Md., poses for a photo at the Potomac Community Neighborhood Park in Rockville, Md. For del Canto, working for the government was supposed to be a respite from the ups and downs of the technology industry. Now he and his federally employed wife have been furloughed in the government shutdown. He says he still loves his job, but "it's a very uncomfortable and uneasy situation when you never know if we're going to shut down. It's just not something you can plan for and it impacts you on a real basis every day," he said. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana) less
