Harry Morgan 1915-2011

That's sad to hear; I think I just kind of assumed he was going to live forever. I've always had a love for Harry Morgan because some of my earliest memories--from 1979, when my Dad was still in the Army--are of watching M*A*S*H. As a three year-old, I had this weird, naive idea that when we lived at Fort Hood, what my Dad was doing all day was basically the same thing they were doing at the 4077th: that is, goofing around. And Radar was from Iowa, like me and my Dad, so it was a whole thing... anyway, I loved Colonel Potter, and I always loved seeing Harry Morgan pop up anywhere else. Sorry to hear he died.

Agreed, even when he was playing a crank, you still liked him. Also, Dragnet was cool.
