Minute 35: Syngman Rhee's Utility Bill

After a brief detour to talk about astronauts, we get back to discussing Hawkeye and Houlihan discussing the nurses. MASH expert Chris Henry confirms that real MASHes in a blackout would have had people holding flashlights just like in Hawkeye's story, although no word on how much singing was involved. Before you feel too light-hearted, we go deep for a Monday into the symbolism of the song "When the Lights Come On Again", Chris shares a story of the real Hawkeye dealing with death in the OR, and we explore the Circle of Life for Anti-Communist Dictators and debate the lessons of the Vietnam War.
