The Enquirer Profiles Cincinnati's "Hottest" Doctors...

December 8, 2006 09:52 AM an attempt to play off of the popularity of Grey's AnatomyNewsAche thinks this project was a waste of a reporter's time.  Usually we love you, NewsAche, but lighten up!  We think the story was totally worth it... we're all for saluting hotness, here at NBS!

But what really made us smile was reading that several doctors slammed the Enquirer for the premise of the story.  For example, Dr. Janice F. Rafferty--a colon and rectal surgeon--told the Enquirer that it's what's on the inside that matters:

"Health care professionals, in general, strive to conduct themselves in a serious and professional manner, not to look 'hot,' "said Dr. Janice F. Rafferty, chief of colon and rectal surgery at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

Booo-hooo, Dr. Rafferty.  You are no fun!  And who wants a colon and rectal surgeon that's no fun?

UPDATE:  A photo of Dr. Rafferty is available here.  She's mousy.  And could maybe lose the glasses.  But she's not buck ugly or anything, so we don't really know what her prob. is.


A totally asinine article.

It would have been fine for the breezy, brainless "CIN Weekly" - which is geared specifically towards gas-headed young adults.

But this type of thing makes the Enquirer look shoddy and unimportant. What's next - 'Hot or Not' for local city officials?

But Brendan, the Enquirer IS shoddy and unimportant.

As for hot or not for local officials, we don't have to worry about the Enquirer going down that road. There's not a single local official who would qualify as "hot."

You are right! Trust me, Rear Admiral Rafferty IS no fun.
