A "Sanjay as surgeon" sighting.

(This post has been edited by request.) Dev wrote me with news of Dr. Gupta's neurosurgery operation on an injured NHL player who has since passed, and a photo of Dr. Gupta updating the public on the patient's condition. Thank you Dev.

Sanjay stuff: The story of a doctor, also a surgeon, with the same name who has had people confuse him for CNN's Sanjay Gupta.

I just read over at Talk of Men that Dr. Gupta will be on Oprah on Friday, so don't forget to tune in if you hope to have a Sanjay sighting of your own.

Totally Tucker.

Tucker Carlson. The bowtie. That smirk. You secretly like him, don't you? Or maybe, like Janeane Garofalo who guest co-hosted Crossfire with him last month, you believe that he secretly likes you.
"Tucker's madly in love with me," says Garofalo, 38, tongue firmly in cheek...Like Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, his aloofness is a cover for his ardent feelings." (The Philadelphia Inquirer.)
Is it possible that Hillary Clinton likes him too? After losing his boast that her book wouldn't sell a million copies or he'd eat his shoes, Hillary didn't keep him to his word. Instead she came on the show with a chocolate cake shaped like a shoe and he ate a piece. (Full story with video.)

Here's an image of Tucker laughing in embarassment. I think it's a cute look for him.


Speaking of cute, have you seen his bio photo? It's Tucker in a tux! And he's ready to take us to the prom. I could say something about him being the male equivalent of Ann Coulter, except I think that would not do him justice. On a unisex scale of news personality hotness, I believe he ranks higher. So instead I will say hmmm, he does look a bit like a certain blog personality.

And:
A Conversation with Tucker Carlson.
If you were trapped in an elevator for four hours with a politician, who would you prefer?

If I could get James Traficant out of prison I might choose him.
Boy Genial
Carlson is best known as the co-host of CNN's "Crossfire"; he's the one in the bow tie with the insouciantly undergraduatish demeanor (and who also isn't Paul Begala). He seems like a pleasant sort...
Up next: Tim Russert, Lou Dobbs, maybe some others and I'm going to try not to write these things when I'm so sleepy.

P.S. In case you wondered, Mr. Carlson like some other InfoHunks is married with children.
