I was so sure I had the answer to the question posed by a recent letter writer, who asked which other profession has pensions, health care and works less than a full year ["Teachers' benefits are too generous," Dec. 10]. It was obvious. Congress!

Maybe the writer forgot about our representatives, or perhaps he doesn't consider them to be professionals.
