My last post about The Wire ever. I promise*

The good people over at literary webzine Please Don’t decided to put together a symposium on The Wire and they were kind enough to ask me to participate. Good looking out, Thorny

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.

The responses we got were enthusiastic, insightful, and are compiled below. Just one caveat—this is an exercise in spoilers. You really shouldn’t read on if you haven’t watched the show in its entirety.

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

Baltimore 90210

From Cynpsis

Leading the cast of The CW’s Beverly Hills 90210 spinoff series will be Tristan Wilds as Dixon Mills, son of a prominent Beverly Hills family, reports THR. Shenae Grimes plays his sister Annie. Also cast is Michael Steger as the high schools noted politician.

How great would it be if the producers created a back story where somehow Michael ends up living fat in Beverly Hills a la The Fresh Prince?  Can you imagine how thoroughly he would run the school after being in charge of a drug corner? Let Donna graduate?  Let that bitch get out on the street  and get my money!
