This is kind of like getting a text message from your grandmother

The Sizzler turned me on on to Gov Gab, the new fun and friendly federal government blog! See, not everybody in D.C. thinks that the internet is a series of tubes.

"We are federal employees who work in the Office of Citizen Services and Communications at the U.S. General Services Administration. In our daily jobs, we encounter a staggering amount of U.S. government information and services that can benefit your life. From saving money and visiting National Parks to finding out about government auctions and the latest recalls, we want to bring these resources to you in a new way—through our blog."
