“Horse Puckey!”

He was the still point in that M*A*S*H world of humor, tragedy and social commentary about war in one of the most well-written shows we may ever know.  

Harry Morgan died at the age of 96. His role as the crusty, but soft-hearted, Col. Potter of the 4077 will live long after today. Every Monday night we plopped ourselves in front of that television to listen to the wit and wisdom - and insights about the real price of war. The dialog was rich with humor and political commentary. Morgan's salty character added poignancy and the voice of the “older soldier.”  He entertained us and educated us, with grace.
