As a child, the earliest memories of a TV show that made the most impact on me was MASH . Alan Alda's character "Hawkeye" shaped my views about violence and our responsisbility to "do the right thing" more than any superheroes that I read about in comic books. He planted the seeds of feminism in me when he gave an interview (early 1970s) in which he said that he would give up acting to work in support of the Equal Rights Amendment. All this as I was growing up in a very conservative household where my father was a policeman and minister. What cultural or mass market figure did that for you?
