We posted a call: 500 words on your favorite scene of The Wire. We felt it was important that the pieces be brief and focused like the scenes they honor and that a variety of voices be heard. In both, we hope to pay a sort of homage.

I can’t think of a better way to waste the last 30 minutes of your workday while you pretend to be doing something productive. Check it out.
