Although addressed to Amy Harmon, I will make a comment.

>> By that I also mean you came here to interview people, with which you then use the head line - Young, Assured and Playing Pharmacist to Friends. Basically you're suggesting we are here "playing" - when one plays are they playing games, instruments etc? - as a child I used to play doctors and nurses. Now the media, is directly advertising to the public that as a grown adult the mentally ill are (the young ones) a culture who are now playing the role of a Pharmacist? Which truth is it that you have led the millions of readers to believe here with your story? When one plays a game is there a loser and a winner? ~ who are you making out to be the loser and the winner with your title?<<

What verb would you have had her use? It's clear to me that see didn't use the word in the literal sense of children playing, or playing as in a competive event.
