Sanjay Gupta, MD: Mythic TV Doctor Billboard
While on my little adventure last week trying to find David Blaine, I ended up in Times Square. I did two things (besides not seeing Blaine because I was two days too early).
First, I visited the much heralded "Charmin Holiday Toilettes," and secondly,
I saw the giant billboard of CNN's own Dr. Sanjay Gupta, and started laughing.
He makes house calls around the world. I wonder if he goes to Peoria?
Notice that Dr. Gupta is "investigating, examining, reporting." Am I the only one disturbed by the lack of curing? And yes, I know, that Dr. Gupta is a dedicated brain surgeon. He looks like he cures, yes? Well, at least he looks earnest. I like Dr. Gupta, just not so sure about the larger than life advertising campaign.
