I’ll admit, I wanted that baby in bed as early as humanely possible so I could watch the series finale of The Wire. Good baby, lucky mommy.

I don’t particularly like cop shows, or crime shows, or whatever. I’m more partial to Jane Austen or Biography Channel. But unequivicoally, The Wire is the best dramatic show I have ever watched in my life.

I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It’s all in the game though, right?

If they can make a lily white girl from the sub-suburbs identify with a Robin Hood-esque stick-up artist, a mid-level drug lieutenant or a homeless heroin junkie, then dang, did they do something right or what?

Ain’t no shame in holding on to grief, as long as you make room for other things, too.

It ended like it started, one big maddening societal circle jerk. Not just good television, but good LITERATURE. Tha’some Dickensian shit.
