This show is just an ego trip for Alan Alda(hawkeye) who is also the shows biggest hypocrite who is always barking about treating others fairly all the while abusing others who don't share his views such as Frank Burns and any other military officer. He campaigns against all that has made this nation free as well as others. Some will say it is just a show but, I disagree and Hollywood knows that shows such as this breed ideas and attitudes that they desire. Anyone who ever forgets that is open to the brain washing power of television if you do not keep your mind about you. MASH Entertainment ? I'd rather watch grass grow or paint dry !!!
