From the Globe: Ablow attacked

An accused white supremacist killer and rapist attacked a nationally known psychiatrist and television personality today during a mental health evaluation gone wrong, authorities said ... (read full blurb here).

Ablow was not injured - or at least according to the report, he subdued the prisoner.

Is there anything involving this guy that does not get publicity?

I don't know! ... But did I mention that I ran into him once, at the CVS, and that I used to work with him at New England Medical Center, when he was a psychiatry resident? There's even more publicity, of a sort ... actually, since I worked in the psychiatry dept. as an editor, he was just one of the rabble of residents who flowed through, and I have no actual memory to relate of him from there since we never interacted with one another.

No offense to the good doctor (or, for that matter, anyone else) but didn't it cross anyone's mind that sending in a Jewish psychiatrist to deal with a violent white supremacist murder suspect who carved a swastika into his forehead was, y'know, a BAD IDEA?!?!?
