NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It just may be that Washington has done some Americans a favor the past several weeks with all of the drama emanating from the government shutdown. There's a real epidemic that no one has really been talking about, that being a sort of depression or withdrawal resulting from the end of the much heralded "Breaking Bad" television series.Just think about the timing. "Breaking Bad" ends on Sept. 29. The shutdown starts on Oct. 1. Thankfully, I never really watched the show until the very end, so my mind is clear, and I can see what's going on. The politicos are softening the blow by creating their own drama. It's reassuring to see they are always thinking about what's best for the people. Sorry, that's the best I can do on this one.
