If you are familiar with the S-R's style, you know we refer to medical doctors, dentists and veterinarians as a doctor, but not those with an academic Ph.D.
Would you change that in any way?
Personally, though I have friends who are academic doctors, I'm happy with our policy. But my attitude about this was hardened years ago, at another newspaper.
One of my editors began dating a college professor. Not long after that she came in one day and suggested that we start giving academics the “Dr.” treatment in print.
I cannot recall if any of the reporters literally threw up. But it was a long time ago.
