Quote of the millennium so far from David Simon: 'The premise that The Wire wasn't real because it didn't show people have good outcomes in west Baltimore... I don't know what to tell them. We didn't spend a series in a cul-de-sac with people barbecuing; it was the story of what's happening at the bottom rungs of an economy where capitalism has been allowed free rein. And if he's telling me it's not happening, I want to take his fucking entitled ass and drive him to west Baltimore and shove him out of the car at Monroe and Fayette, and say, find your way back, fucker, because you've got your head up your ass at the Atlantic.'
