The recent news about our new government branch, the Cheney branch, reminded me of the Business Law class I took at Northeastern University last fall semester. Although it was a Business Law class, we had a brief overview of the US government structure and laws.
During our first test, the following “gimme” question appeared:
There are four branches of the US government. True or False?
I chose false, yet while we were going over the test after everyone took it, a few students said they chose true. The professor marked my answer as correct, but apparently I and the professor were wrong, as there are now four branches of government. I though those few students were idiots, turns out they were prophets!
