    YEAH...I was wondering why athletes weren't on that list. Maybe not enough of them to create a good database?

    How about politicians?
  • fintailfintail Posts: 48,094
    The list includes accidents and tickets...politicos (and athletes most likely) escape the latter all the time, and probably avoid being named in the former too.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright Sonoma, CaliforniaPosts: 64,490 I can get that service?

    You gotta be special.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright Sonoma, CaliforniaPosts: 64,490
    but....but...I AM special :cry:

    Sidenote: When I worked in Alaska, we had a rule NEVER to hitch a plane ride from a doctor unless he was a "native".
  • fintailfintail Posts: 48,094
    Yes you are...but you also gotta be loaded or able to make people think you can provide perks :shades:

    Did non-native doctors have a propensity for crashing?

    Seems like they did---I was warned about it, so must have been something to it.

    I can understand why real estate brokers are crashing----their cell phones are grafted to their heads most of the time.
