All D.C.-area federal agencies were closed Monday after the snowstorm last weekend. Shutting down the federal government costs $100 million a day in lost productivity.
Kentucky police said Tuesday that Bill Sparkman, the census worker found hanged with "FED" written on his chest, was trying to make his suicide look like a murder for insurance purposes.
