This year I'm seeing again some very creative definitions of the word 'emergency.' It's a special word, since it gives license to ignore the usual rules about all manner of things.

When things like that happen, there often isn't enough time to fulfill every procedural nicety, and there's a general understanding that some slack need be cut.
