Our post yesterday on South Florida's 11 hottest newsmen drew a lot attention in the Twittersphere and even a damned funny video. Moms got involved. There was a fair amount of fraternity-style backslapping. Even a congrats from our own columnist that might raise, ahem, questions about the choices... of course, we have no questions.
The funniest riposte came from the Sun Sentinel's Dave Aizer, who pitched himself to join the list in a video and responded thusly to the hottie list: "I'm jealous... This hair is a full-time job."

Jason Martinez, at number 11, was not completely truthful.
@DeirdraFuncheon I laughed, I cried: was it just an elaborate spoof? Then I realized my home smells of leather bound books and mahogany.

Todd McDermott was deprecating, but also maybe hitting on the writer.

Looks like our own columnist got involved with Louis Aguirre. Conflict of interest on our part, maybe?
