SPOKANE, Wash. — For a group of Whitworth University students, the partial shutdown of the federal government is suddenly much more than a news item. It’s real life. Months ago, they enrolled in a three-week academic program that promised, among other things, a “behind-the-scenes experience of the breadth of knowledge in the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum, education and research complex, in Washington, D.C.” Their timing couldn’t have been worse. They landed on Wednesday to news that the Smithsonian, the National Zoo and almost every other federally operated site has been closed indefinitely.
