BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: Colonel Sherman Potter has died; that is to say, the great Harry Morgan has died. His Colonel Potter character was a mainstay on " MASH " from 1975 to '83. He was a plainspoken Detroiter who was pre-law at the University of Chicago before getting bitten by the acting bug. He had a big starring role in "Dragnet," of course, in addition to films and plays. Harry Morgan was 96 years old.
