LL Cool J, Dr. Anthony Fauci, *and* Bobby Baccalieri In One Room? Oh, This Is Going To Be Good

By Carl Zimmer | April 2, 2009 1:44 pm

This is quite an honor, although the list of honorees is exactly backwards. If you’ve dedicated your career to fighting HIV or heart disease, let me step aside so you can head straight to the front of the line. I’ll just hang back and see if I can get an autograph from Bobby Baccalieri from the Sopranos.

  1. Carl,

    Gulp.

    I am trying to lessen my comment postings at the moment (real life = more busy, my last one was about Shampoo) but must say, due to various reasons, and having read the ‘Heart Valve’ Disease link you put here, it made me think again. Surely these events must encourage better understanding of health and medical science and give it prominence. We can’t argue with that ( well I can’t).

    Well done.

    Claire
