>And, like you said Lurker, he alwys said "I can't
give medical advice on this board or discuss details
of other's condition, etc, and yet here he's
discussing details of one of his "patients/clients".

In the US, the privacy of personal medical information
is protected by Federal and many state laws. The
Federal law is known as HIPPA; see the section titled
"Privacy rule" at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_Insurance_Portabili
ty_and_Accountability_Act

California and many other states have privacy laws
similar to HIPPA.

Doctors and health professionals are prohibited from
releasing patients medical information unless they have
a signed release form on file. If Graham released this
information while he is physically in the US (for his
post-WFF activities?), he may be violating Federal law
by doing so. I believe he can be fined for such an
infraction, up to $250K.
