R.I.P. The Wire
Even though I'm only through season 1, I've been completely swept up by The Wire. I saw Richard Price (author of Clockers and Lush Life; wrote five episodes of The Wire) tonight read at William Mitchell. He is being labeled the greatest writer of dialogue alive, and I'd have a hard time arguing with that. Anyway, I may write more about him later, because he had a lot of interesting things to say, but enjoy this from a blog called Stuff White People Like. Don't bother with the comments, though, unless you want to become totally enraged by the ridiculous racism that still plagues us because of certain fucking idiots. See, I'm pissed. The post is funny though.
