Government reopens

Kaity Briscoe shares a laugh with U.S. Park Service Ranger V. Cutright as her husband Jordan Rousseau, center, looks on while waiting for the U.S.S. Constitution, the oldest ship in the United States Navy, to open in Boston, Thursday morning, Oct. 17, 2013. Federal memorials and National Park Service sites opened, and thousands of furloughed federal workers returned to work across the country Thursday after 16 days off the job due to the partial government shutdown.
