Les Roberts - Not a Former Surgeon

I slapped my forehead listening to WRVO this morning when I heard a comment during a story about Leon Koziol's withdrawal from the race. The reporter referred to Les Roberts as a "former surgeon".

The reporter might as well refer to Michael Arcuri as a former judge, or Brad Jones as a former assembly member, or Ray Meier as a former Wal-Mart greeter.

Perhaps the reporter was thinking of Dr. Bob Johnson, a Democrat and thoracic surgeon who is running for Congress in the 23rd District?

Don't feel badly, Jon. I saw a piece that referred to Mike Arcuri as a former Oneida County Executive. Brilliance is not a strong attribute of our press these days. I DO like the idea of Meier as a Walmart Greeter though.

He probably couldn't pronounce "epidemiologist".
