  1. We have two things in common: 1) Both born in NJ and 2) both had polio at young age: You 7, me 5. Both got over it, thank goodness. Watched you recently on “Same Time Next year” Often wondered what kind of relationship you had off screen with Ellen.

  2. I have looked like Alan my entire life. On the last night of mash I won a look alike contest which won my wife and I money and a trip to Palm Springs California for a week. The funny thing is when I was in school my nickname was Hawkeye. This was way before the series Mash. The night I won the contest I dressed in white scrubs and my field jacket. I was in the medical profession and had also been in the army. During the entire night as I walked around the hotel in which the contest was held everyone thought Alan was really there.
