Excuse notes from docs at protests draw scrutiny So, lemme get this straight. Protesters want to be paid for their days away from work, so they call in sick. To get those days paid, they need a doctor's note. To show solidarity with the protesters, some doctors are issuing these notes at the site of the protest by the thousands. Anyone besides me see a possible ethical issue or two here? Only in America are people so fat and lazy, they want to be paid to protest. What a clusterfuck this is becoming.
