Happy Tuesday. The (nonessential) government has shut down; the (essential) Morning Six-Pack happily rolls on:

So everybody's got their own shutdown story and we all kind of know what they say. But here's the greatest shutdown tabloid cover. (Daily News)

The thing about this shutdown is that this time it's different. (Wall Street Journal)

Republicans may be taking a beating in the mainstream press, but that doesn't necessarily mean conservatives have completely blown it. (Quartz)

The government shutdown may be real, but most of this is fake. (The Onion)
