Jesus Freakin' Christ! All he had to say was he didn't like the show!

Damn! I didn't know Rawls made it to the Commissioner's seat! Miracles never cease!

Good on Simon for defending his work. That douchenozzle commish should have just said Thank You for all the jobs and for casting a light on just how hard it is to fix cities that are royally screwed up.


'i don't suck!'

Hey, your "Publicly, let me state that The Wire owes no apologies" link is wonky.


Thanks,Maitri. I fixted it.

I can't find "exemplorary" in the dictionary. Does anybody know what it means?

try excemptlorary

Yes... what The Wire needed was a guest appearance by Walker, Texas Ranger so the Baltimore cops could look a little more "kick-ass".

Episode could end with Chuck Norris going "Who's that whistling out there?".

You've got to give him a break that police and video have a very complicated relationship.

Like can someone explain to me why:

1) Police have cameras installed in their cars because they are so good at showing exactly what happened


2) If police are called to a scene and there is a camera rolling, the first thing they do is insist that the camera be turned off. And folks with cameras at demonstrations seem to be, in many cases, singled out by the police.

I am proud to be an acqaintance of Mrs. Simon, a woman of vast intelligence, wit, concern for others and a superlative taste in men, if not in acquaintances.

That said, The Wire is the best damn thing ever written for TV.

David, on Facebook "Mrs. Simon" refers to her husband as "Mr. Lippman."

Yes, indeed she does.
