Recently, I received an e-mail from a young associate pastor in Maryland. He introduced himself as an avid fan of "MASH."

I thought about that episode just recently, in the context of some religious writing. I had no idea Burt Prelutsky had written it, but I’ve enjoyed his columns for years.
I was going to post this in the Religion forum but I don’t know anyone there. Also, I thought it was more than just religious.
It’s more a media-history piece than a religious piece, since the column doesn’t really discuss the content of the episode he wrote. Maybe it was the section on “shell shock” casualties in the World War I course I’m listening to on CD that made me think of this episode. The ones with Sidney Friedman were often my favorites!
He sure has, including several episodes of “MASH.” Clever guy.
