For those interested in a distraction from Miley and / or shutdown-related news, this video posted by the AP should do it. Sometimes bleating baby animals make it all better. According to the video's description:
A female white lion cub born at Belgrade Zoo in Serbia was shown to the media on Thursday. The cub, yet to be named, was born last Thursday and weighs 2.8 pounds. The mother, lioness Masha, came to Belgrade zoo from South Africa's Kruger Park.
Apparently white lions are a rare mutation of a species found in South Africa and "are traditionally considered divine." They are also no longer found in the wild because their coloring makes them easy prey.
