Chowing down at a jampacked Rise No. 1 Saturday night, Dallas pediatric surgeon Dr. Carlos Laos could barely contain his glee over the role Fred Baron has been shown to have played in the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter scandal. Dallas plaintiff’s attorney Baron–who made his fortune suing everybody and his dog over dubious asbestos claims–has cost the medical profession untold millions of dollars, Laos said, so exposure of his role as a payoff man in the Edwards fiasco seems fitting. Then Laos paraphrased Robin Williams from the flick Peter Pan: Hook: “Someday, if we’re lucky, science researchers will be able to substitute plaintiff’s lawyers for laboratory rats. That way, the researchers will no longer be at risk of becoming emotionally attached to the subjects, as they sometimes do now with rats. And the lawyers will be perfect for research, because they’ll do things the rats never would.” Don’t hold back, Carlos; tell us how you really feel!
