“He listened.” The Siren says good-bye to Harry Morgan.
Since I was a little kid, I was a Harry Morgan fan, mainly, I think, because he resembled my Grandfather Mannion. And I’m very proud of this: way back when, I somehow knew, well before it was announced, that the new commander of the 4077th was going to be Harry Morgan. In fact, I predicted it as soon as I heard McLean Stevenson was leaving the show. I was going by Morgan’s guest appearance on M*A*S*H as the lunatic General Bartford Hamilton Steele in the episode “The General Flipped at Dawn.” Even though he was playing crazy, Morgan seemed to fit right in with the rest of the cast. Impressed the horse hockey out my friends and relations when it turned out I was right.
