Dr. Jay

The Washington Post has an article on Pat Robertson's marketing of a weight-loss drink mix. I don't have any problems with this, I have always thought that Pat was primarily about making a buck.

But this part did catch my eye:

In large type on the front of the can, the product is labeled "Pat's Diet Shake." In smaller type on the back, it is identified as "Dr. Pat Robertson's Diet Shake." Robertson is not a medical doctor, but he has a law degree, known formally as a juris doctor, from Yale Law School.

Henceforth, I will follow Dr. Robertson's lead and demand to be referred to as Dr. Jay.
