Way back in 1991, NBC's Arthur Kent, in all his TV good looks, won the title "Scud Stud" for his missile-dodging Gulf War reporting. Now he's back in the news, only this time he's the one firing the shots. Kent tells us that he's running for a seat in the Alberta, Canada, legislative assembly, representing part of Calgary. "I enjoyed being a reporter," says Kent, "but I always wondered what I would do if I was at the table." He may soon know. He has been picked as the district's Progressive Conservative candidate. "I'm very much a centrist," he says. Being the Scud Stud helps. "It's a wonderful thing to be recognized in your own hometown."
