Times have changed

On this Pentagon photo of outgoing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld signing a whiteboard at Balad Air Base in Iraq ("you fellows are superstars"), an adjacent signature is clearly visible, a relic of a previous visit: that of Bill Frist, styling himself "M.D., Senate Majority Leader." Sadly, he probably was not a "M.D." when he signed, having let his license lapse, and the last election saw off the latter title as well.
