U.S. government statistician Steve Hanway, who normally leads a team of statisticians tallying injuries of consumers for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, spends some of the time he cannot be working because of the U.S. government shutdown weeding a long neglected garden outside his home in Gaithersburg, Maryland October 4, 2013. Hanway is spending his days sidelined in his home in Gaithersburg, Maryland, one of about 800,000 federal workers furloughed in the first U.S. government shutdown in 17 years.
