You know how Congress often adds amendments to bills that are totally unrelated to the bills themselves?
While looking up the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 (in the aftermath of this post), I discovered that one of the last provisions deals with the transition from analog to digital television broadcasting. There is also a provision regarding time periods for Medicare+ plans.
I'm stunned. I think it is an exercise for the imagination to see how these things are related.
