Sandra Day O'Connor and Larry Flynt don't often socialize in the same circles (though she did vote in his favor in Hustler Magazine v. Falwell) but  leave it to Larry King to bring everyone together. Saturday night Larry's Cardiac Foundation raised $1.2 million at its annual gala at the DC Ritz, featuring  performances by SNL impressionist Darryl Hammond, Grammy winner Seal, and magician Nathan Burton. We swung by to do celeb-spotting.


Now that she's retired, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor can relax a little, here, with American College of Cardiology CEO Jack Lewin. Jack alerted us to "radical changes" at ACC that are putting patients first. ACC's new website, cardiosmart.org, helps patients understand diagnoses, get e-reminders on med refills and doc visits, and "Ask the Cardiologist." As for his own health, Jack says he and his new personal trainer are out running 5 miles every day. He'd be glad to share his trainer's number, but it's a yellow lab named Luke, lacking opposable thumbs to answer the phone. As for Justice O'Connor, we assume she's just a Seal groupie.    


Larry and Shawn King check out auction items on the 20th anniversary of the event, which this year included an award for Cleveland Clinic's Joseph Sabik. The Foundation will pay for 200 cardiac procedures in 2008, up 70% from last year and closing in on its goal to "Save A Heart a Day."  On Saturday, special $25,000 donations came from DC's own Dan Snyder, Six Flags, and the Chrysler Foundation.



GW Anesthesiology and Critical Care Chair Michael Berrigan joined Prof. Marco Mercader and Director of Critical Care Barbara Jacobs at the GW Hospital table. Marco says GW is one of the few local hospitals using 3-D maps to locate and terminate arrhythmias. The procedure renders atrial fibrillation much more treatable. Marco's a bit of a party-hopper. Saturday it was the Larry King gala, and Sunday an even bigger affair: a soiree for his son's second birthday.
