      Old Harry had a hell of a life and career. I remember watching Dragnet when I was little every afternoon. Officer Gannon

      I aways found it funny that he played a crazy general in a Mash episode before he came on as Col. Potter.

        Me too! I've seen every episode probaby 20 times.

        RIP Harry!

          They air episodes on some cable network on weekend nights.
          He was awesome in nodding affirmatively when Joe Friday would light into some punk kid with a terse and damning lecture on the evils of marijuana.
          Or pot or reefer as you kids call it.

          It helped punctuate the seriousness of the lecture and the righteousness of Joe Friday's tireless crusade against juvenile delinquency and the horror that results from kids--some as young as twelve years old smoking a powerful and damaging narcotic.

            I still enjoy watching reruns of MASH when I can It was my moms favourite show, and she always watched it when I was a kid. Now, when I watch it, I understand why she found it so funny.

                I agree with Print Driver. Dont try to force the tire as an 'a'. Maybe incorporate the font in a tire that is circling around the font, if that makes sense. If you're familiar with illustrator you should...
