No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

All helpful urges should be circumvented.

Apparently I did so well on my citation check for the Key Midwestern Swing State University Law Review (that's Key M.W. Swing St. U. L. Rev. for you Bluebook fans) that the editors sought fit to offer me a research check that had been abruptly abandoned by another assistant editor. Always pleased to be recognized, I of course accepted. Now the planets have aligned and the Great Confluence of Deadlines arises from the mist. The Day of Reckoning is upon us and I find myself screaming in my sleep:

What have I done?

What have I done?!
