The Wire

I don’t have cable so I don’t watch HBO too often. This show, ‘The Wire’, caught my attention while reading comments by the show’s director, David Simon. We’re Headed Towards Separate Americas about sums up the new reality in our spiritually impoverished, all for profit country. David Simon is pessimistic about our society, too, and it is refreshing to not just hear the usual cheerleading for America the Beautiful as always. Well worth the short read, or better yet, here is the first part of Simon’s recent talk at Loyola University in Baltimore. The other 2 parts are on youtube, too.

Comments from anybody that has seen the show, The Wire?
