Separated at Birth: The Atlantic’s James Hamblin and ‘Doogie Howser, M.D.’

Doogie-Howser-doogie-howser-md-3194744-1024-734Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 16.59.19A recent series from Atlantic Video by senior editor James Hamblin, MD, explores “If Our Bodies Could Talk,” including “Single-Tasking is the New Multitasking,” “Workouts to Do at Work” that we’ll never actually do, and that wine isn’t as healthy as we thought.

Unbeknownst to us, the young MD has already been everywhere. His work has been featured on or covered by MSNBC, The New York Times and POLITICO. TIME named his Twitter handle in the top 140 best Twitter feeds of 2014. And BuzzFeed referred to him as ‘the most delightful MD ever.’ We agree.

While the topics so far covered in the series already induce much anxiety, we can’t help but watch and be reminded of another MD we all know well, Doogie Howser. Read more

‘It’s a Hard Knock Life’ for ‘Poor Hillary Clinton’ According to RNC

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 13.14.17‘It’s a hard knock life’ for ‘poor’ Hillary Clinton according to a website unveiled today by the Republican National Committee. Paid for by the RNC, PoorHillaryClinton.com is a nod to the likely 2016 presidential hopeful’s comments that she and husband Bill Clinton were ‘dead broke’ after leaving the White House in 2000.

The Tumblr of sorts includes links to news hits which reference the Clinton’s wealth, raking in $275,000 for speaking fees and a Wall Street Journal piece likely placing the former First Family in the ‘top 1% of the top 1%.’
