The Real Hawkeye Pierce

The Irish Elk has a great collection of stuff over the past week, but this little bit in particular about the author who wrote M*A*S*H made me snort hot tea through my nose:

After being informed that someone had beat up a few political-science professors at the local college, Hawkeye replies: "They're a bunch of lefties, aren't they? Fella oughta kick the bejesus out of a liberal now and then just to stay in shape."

Ah, the thought of a conservative, cantankerous, middle-aged Alan Alda reciting that line is priceless.
