  1. I cannot say enough about the late, great Wayne Rogers. I just loved the man, and I never even got the opportunity to meet him. In the early Nineties, he and my other grand idol, Lee Majors, came to Columbia, where I live, to participate in our local celebrity golf tournament. Unfortunately, I could not sell my employer of the time on the idea of taking the day off to go out there and possibly meet my two greatest idols. Two years later, he fired me anyway, and, a few years after that, the company itself went tits up! So, I should’ve quit on him to go meet Wayne and Lee! Wayne Rogers possessed a rare charisma that made people love him in spite of his warts. ( we all have a few, so, no biggie ) When I see Wayne on television, especially as Trapper John, and his other CBS alter-ego Charley Michaels, ( actually, there’s no distinction between these two characters, they’re the same guy with the same identical personality ) I am smiling, because there are few things in life that can cheer me up better than the infectious, ringing laughter of Wayne Rogers! Just loved him!
