‘MASH’ reference out of context

To the editor:

Mr. Cohen, a Zoning Board of Adjustment member was elected and represents his constituency of Bennington. Mr. Cohen’s comment, “take two of these and call me in the morning,” was made during a public hearing in July. The “two of these” were the two bullets Mr. Cohen placed on the table. I decided to look up the entire quote from the “MASH” TV program reference he has referred to.

This is actually what the TV character Hawkeye said about the Korean War: “ I can take umbrage, I can take the cake, I can take the A-train, I can take two and call me in the morning, but I cannot take this sitting down. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna take five.”
