While the issue varies from state to state and is very fact specific, holding yourself out as a doctor and providing medical advice to an individual may very well be considered engaging in the practice of medicine, which appears to be illegal in every state unless you're practicing within the scope of an appropriate professional license.


In Oregon, the relevant statutes are ORS 677.080(4), ORS 677.085(1) and (4), and ORS 677.990.

Did those people actually get more than $1,350 per seat? It sounds like they asked for me but the airline stood firm. But yeah, I'm not sure who would actually make any effort to police airlines who offer more money (if, indeed, that statute creates a ceiling above which airlines are not supposed to go). Certainly not the passengers. And I can't think the FAA would crack down.

Same here. I'm 45 and as far as I can recall, the music I've always been the most passionate about is stuff I heard for the first time within the prior five or so years (currently a lot of Flogging Molly, Frank Turner, Gogol Bordello, and Authority Zero). I still have a fondness for classic rock on occasion, but I don't understand how some of my contemporaries can listen exclusively to the local classic rock radio station year in and year out. Freebird!!!!
