The Wire Bible

Kottke has great stuff on The Wire Bible. Though they blew the quote, they should have taken the 3rd paragraph:

"The grand theme here is nothing less than a national existentialism: It is a police story set amid the dysfunction and indifference of an urban department -- one that has failed to come to terms with the permanent nature of urban drug culture, one in which thinking copes, and thinking street players, must make their way independent of simple explanations."

I've been unable to download The Wire pdf from any of those kottke links. Do you have it?
