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

    How about politicians?

    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.

    Sidenote: When I worked in Alaska, we had a rule NEVER to hitch a plane ride from a doctor unless he was a "native".

    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.
