Now that the federal government is back on its feet, the Census API is serving up data again, and the acs.R package should work like it was supposed to.

For example:

> acs.fetch(geo=geo.make(state=25), table.number="B01003")
ACS DATA: 
 2007 -- 2011 ;
  Estimates w/90% confidence intervals;
  for different intervals, see confint()
              B01003_001   
Massachusetts 6512227 +/- 0
