    I wonder, though, if it's an honorary title, if you should or shouldn't use the 'Dr.' when formally addressing someone with an honorary degree. I'll have to ask around...

    As far as I am aware the answer is no. Just as Bob Geldof should not be referred to as 'Sir Bob' because he is an Irish citizen. His knighthood is honorary. However, apparently some people do refer to themselves as 'Dr'.

    Hello, Dr. Schmit.

    (Not that I think the honorary degree was a result of a premeditated "quid prop quo" - in fact, I think that's obviously not the case, considering the timing - but perhaps the university felt a "thank you" was in order for his generous endowment and continued support).

    However, Joe's got them all beat. He got an honorary doctorate from Kent University ten years ago. This will be his second!

    Right, Joe said he left Kent State after the shootings there. Funny, now he has a doctorate from there now!

    Joe's Doctorate is also honorary. And I seem to recall that he was far more into his music that his books when he was there. The James Gang play around the Kent/Akron/Cleveland area a LOT. Mom has told lots of great little stories about being something of a groupie when the Gang was getting their start. I suspect the shootings (May 1970) were just the 'push' he needed to leave school and puruse his true love!

    I guess I should be grateful for that 14-year vacation, but I'm just really not feeling it!

    yeah we see it differently don't we?...but I guess maybe we wouldn't have them now if that hadn't happened...and baby I appreciate them a lot more now than I would have then...growing up I guess does that to a person.

    Well, I'm grateful since I missed them the first time around. I'm now old enough to go see them - and can finally afford to!
