WARNING! I'm an atheist, and some of what I write here might, well most likely will, offend a religious person, a person of faith, if you will. It's not done with intent, that's just the way it is.

For some reason, religion is generally treated in a special way. Yes, for some reason, folks think that no one should make fun of religion or say anything negative about religion. I see no logic to this. We can say what we want about your favorite football team, the person who you voted for, and so on, but we're supposed to hold our tongue about your faith. Folks, that just doesn't make any sense. Anyway, I felt I would at least warn you. If you are a religious person I would encourage you to read my posts; with an open mind, please. If I say things that aren't true about your religion, please let me know. Leave a comment or send me an email. Would most likely be willing to discuss it with you. Hey, I'm up for learning something new.

Also, keep in mind, that if you are a Christian, my understanding is that you're saying that your god is the only god. Now, if that's true, which I understand it to be, then that of course is a direct insult to every other religion out there. You've said their god isn't the real deal; I'd call that an insult...

Colonel Sherman Potter, MD, Died

And, so did Harry Morgan at age 96.
Many of you younger folks I am sure have never watched M*A*S*H and possibly have never heard of it. And, if you have never seen the show you have missed out.
MASH was set during the Korean War. Not only was it entertaining in the ha ha way, there were also many serious issues that came up during the program including the absurdities of the military at times and, of course the horrors of war. The other amazing thing was the overall quality of the acting and writing. These were people who you almost felt you knew.
Mr. Morgan gave many of us many hours of TV viewing pleasure, in a way that seems to be gone. Though I gave up TV five or six years ago, the current fare that is supposed to pass for comedy holds a far distant place to a quality program like MASH and, the quality acting from Mr. Morgan and the rest of the cast.
Thank you, Mr. Morgan.
