Pat Morita, "Man Who Catch Fly With Chopstick Accomplish Anything" Dead At 73

Actor Pat Morita has died.

Morita was best known for his role as Mr. Miyagi in "The Karate Kid". A generation of film-goers and martial arts students remembers the "wax on, wax off" exercise used to help the character Daniel-son to succeed in life
and win a karate championship.

I always felt that Mr. Morita was a humane old soul whose character was expressed in the roles he played. We should all miss the presence in the world of a personage like him.
