CINCINNATI -- It was either a carefully crafted message or a serious case of coincidence. Regardless, there is no absence of humor.
A National Weather Service Anchorage, Alaska weather report released Friday has a secret message about the government shutdown.
In the far left column of the report, the first letter of each line spells: "Please pay us."
As the National Weather Service has struggled to keep up in a government shutdown, operating with only the minimum, it was either an act of genius of amazing coincidence.
