I have been teaching a special three week term. Each class meets about 3 hours per day and I am teaching two. (I just finished yesterday.) At the beginning of the term I was asked to testify before Congress regarding my opinion about the future of insurance regulation. I was teaching intensively six hours a day and I was getting a little brain fried, so I said yes. That is when the trouble started.
I received the official invitation from the subcommittee at 5:00pm on Friday. I didn’t read the fine print until Sunday. I had to have 100 copies of my testimony to the subcommittee 48 hours prior to the hearing on Wednesday. That was not a big deal—it just meant I had to finish writing up my testimony by Sunday night and then I would overnight a package to DC. Well, thanks to the anthrax scare of late 2001 --
