paper trail

Did you know how many pieces of paper are required to apply for Georgia State medical licensure? Between all the letters and transcripts and application forms and copies of my diplomas and assertions that I am not wanted for any felonies or back child support? ONE MILLION PIECES. Oh wait, there's also the $400 check. Make that one million and one.

They may call every street in Atlanta "Peachtree," but after printing out all these reams and reams of forms, I doubt there are any trees left anywhere in the universe.
