I've gotta go back and watch some Wire. It's been too long. I think I'm going to do some season 4 tonight. So good.

i just found it to be mostly really boring, and the lack of violence didn't have anything to do with that.

idk it doesn't feel like its dragging like people have told me. ill admit they're hinting at way too many things than can possibly be resolved by the end of the season but i think the characters carry the show well and make up for down time in the plot. i wont pretend im not looking forward to finishing the season so i can start up the wire again though

what the finale sets up for season 2 could make it much more interesting.

the wire moves closer to reality, Snoop (the character, not the rapper) was arrested as part of a large scale baltimore drug investigation.

That's too bad. She literally played herself in the wire, supposedly cleaned up her act after she got outta prison. My girlfriend is from Maryland and Snoop was on the radio all the time talking about her life before and after prison and the show and all, i heard her on Sirius one time (i think she wrote a book too). sucks to see her fall back on old habits.

david simon's response. it's about what you'd expect if you're familiar with him.

First of all, Felicia's entitled to the presumption of innocence. And I would note that a previous, but recent drug arrest that targeted her was later found to be unwarranted and the charges were dropped. Nonetheless, I'm certainly sad at the news today. This young lady has, from her earliest moments, had one of the hardest lives imaginable. And whatever good fortune came from her role in The Wire seems, in retrospect, limited to that project. She worked hard as an actor and was entirely professional, but the entertainment industry as a whole does not offer a great many roles for those who can portray people from the other America. There are, in fact, relatively few stories told about the other America.

Beyond that, I am waiting to see whether the charges against Felicia relate to heroin or marijuana. Obviously, the former would be, to my mind, a far more serious matter. And further, I am waiting to see if the charges or statement of facts offered by the government reflect any involvement with acts of violence, which would of course be of much greater concern.
In an essay published two years ago in Time magazine, the writers of The Wire made the argument that we believe the war on drugs has devolved into a war on the underclass, that in places like West and East Baltimore, where the drug economy is now the only factory still hiring and where the educational system is so crippled that the vast majority of children are trained only for the corners, a legal campaign to imprison our most vulnerable and damaged citizens is little more than amoral. And we said then that if asked to serve on any jury considering a non-violent drug offense, we would move to nullify that jury's verdict and vote to acquit. Regardless of the defendant, I still believe such a course of action would be just in any case in which drug offenses—absent proof of violent acts—are alleged.

Both our Constitution and our common law guarantee that we will be judged by our peers. But in truth, there are now two Americas, politically and economically distinct. I, for one, do not qualify as a peer to Felicia Pearson. The opportunities and experiences of her life do not correspond in any way with my own, and her America is different from my own. I am therefore ill-equipped to be her judge in this matter.
