Trapper John Likes eBay

Channel surfing this morning i saw Trapper John, M.D., arguing about investments on a Fox News stock market show. i thought i was watching a Saturday Night Live skit, but apparently, CPT McIntyre has built a pretty successful investing business since the end of the Korean conflict.

Interesting. He likes eBay, by the way.

"He likes eBay, by the way."

Yes, and Alan Alda too.

Wayne Rogers became so disenchanted with the rampant liberalism infecting the MASH television show(among other things)that he couldn't take it anymore. Hawkeye Pierce has to be one of the alltime self-absorbed, self-important, elitist, know-it-all, insufferable wusses in the history of American culture. Not that I'm bitter.

When I saw the words "Trapper John, M.D." I had to wonder which one you were citing. Remember that CBS came up with a show called "Trapper John, M.D." with someone other than Wayne Rogers playing an older McIntyre.

Back in the late 1970s I had a "Wayne Rogers" brand raincoat. He has done well. Didn't he have a winery, or am I confusing him with the Smothers Brothers?

Extemely successful investment firm. He's won the show's in-house investment contest two or three of the past three or four years, too.
