No TV Doctors for Surgeon General

This isn't really news, but since it's on CNN tonight, we're going to act like it is.

CNN's own chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, has withdrawn his name from consideration for the post of Surgeon General. Dr. Gupta was never formally nominated, but he had spoken with members of the Obama administration and was apparently their top choice.

Still, he'd have to give up practicing medecine in order to become the top doctor in the nation, and I'm guessing that Dr. Gupta's clients pay a lot more than Uncle Sam. That's often what "I'm doing it for my family" means (assuming that it doesn't mean he has some kind of shady past....)

You can read all about it here if you want the full details.

Personally, if we're nominating television stars to be our Surgeon Generals, I want this guy. Mmm, sexy......maybe they would put his face on those ciggarette warnings.
