GUPTA STEPS ASIDE.
I just sent this letter to the White House:
Dear President Obama,
Please consider Steven Novella MD, a neurologist on faculty at Yale University, for the position of US Surgeon General.
You may find out more about Dr. Novella at his web site, Neurologica (http://www.theness.com/neurologicablog).
Although I've never met Dr. Novella and have no direct relationship with him, I know him from his regular podcast, the Skeptics Guide to the Universe, which you may download from this site:
Dr. Novella's communication skills are excellent. He's particularly good at maintaining emotional objectivity while weighing the evidence concerning controversial issues.
Thank you for your time,
STEVE NOVELLA FOR SURGEON GENERAL!
WE WANT STEVE!
