he isn't in the Operating Theatre or in consultation with patients,
the Doctor busies himself with producing acute cultural commentaries

- Kurt Nimmo offers no-holds-barred commentary on the state of current affairs.
- Arthur Silber
- The guy's long-winded in his political analysis, but pierces through the fog like a laser. Mixed metaphors, anyone?

- Howard Forums - Great resource for cell phone users with questions, problems, solutions,
