Post:

I took out a 2 million "umbrella poilicy" with my homeowners insurance.
They also have a special package/rate for educators. It costs about
$100 - $150 a year as I recall. After having a near accident at one
show I thought it might be a good idea. Just to let people know this
exists and you may want to check up on it if you think it is a good
idea. I just did it because I got tired of thinking about it and
really can't recommend one way or another. You just never know with
people having the lawsuit itch at times.
