Blue Light Special

DrKoop.com, founded by Dartmouth alumnus, former surgeon general and Koop Institute founder and Senior Scholar(Chick) Everett Koop has been sold to vitamin peddler Vitacost for $186,000.

At the height of the boom, Koop.com was valued at over $1 billion.

The asset sale comes as no surprise to followers of the beleaguered company, which declared bankruptcy last December and ceased operations. Of late, even Koop himself has been a bit erratic, giving passionate yet occasionally incoherent speeches on the “malignant” tobacco industry.
