Before you jump to conclusions, I think Paul was adding informative 
information based on laws in Iowa.  I don't think he was trying to get on 
anyone's back.

Sure, you can call yourself a Doctor on the golf course, but are you implying 
that a person without an M.D. or a Ph.D. can call themselves a Doctor in 
their professional office or when discussing audiology with someone?
