German party suggests removing the "Dr" from ID cards

Very good. The Green Party in Germany has submitted legislation calling for the doctoral title to no longer be able to be included as part of the name on official ID cards:

Good luck with that, this is one step in the right direction! If you read German, the blog de plagio has a thorough discussion of the use of titles in IDs in Germany. The author does not see this as useful, as people will continue to use it on their business cards. The author insists that people who lose their titles must automatically lose any public office. I'm definitely in on that one!
