comment Person present at the right time and at the right place
I was thinking of that too, but isn't serendipitous usually applied to the occurrence rather than the person?

comment What does ‘government shutdown’ mean exactly?
So no, these are two different things. There may well be "gridlock" throughout the rest of this Congress (until the next one is seated in January 2013), if the two houses decide not to cooperate with each other. It is unlikely, though, that a "government shutdown" will last that long (if it even happens at all); sooner or later one side will give in and a budget will be passed.

comment “ē” and “iː”: I want a tutorial
Fair enough, both of you - I guess I've been too English-centric, forgetting about the I of IPA!

comment Can 'default' be an adverb?
The separate answer (not the one at the end of your question) does sound much better.
