Unusual requests

by Jeffrey Carter

In the past month, I have fielded two extraordinary requests.

About a month ago, a local law firm rang me.  “We’d like to hire you to be an expert witness in a case involving a music professor at another school.”  And so it was that wrote a long brief, and billed the law firm for my time and expertise.

The firm told me last week that my writing was a key ingredient in them winning the case.

Today I received a request from a professor at another private university.  “May I please have reprint permission to use a photo you took at the Twigworth church in Gloucestershire?  I want to use it in a book that I’m writing.”  Of course I granted permission.

Who knows what people will find on the Web!?
