David Simon Creates Commentary Disguised as a Cop Drama on The Wire

Yet another good interview with David Simon. This one in TV Guide is short.

Yeah, good interview. Very true. Did not think he would go that far but I agree.

"The parting message is we are no longer a culture than can recognize our own problems, much less begin to solve them. We will accept the short-term solution, the juked statistics, the jerry-rigged profit over actual substance every time. This is the America we've built and paid for, and it's all we deserve. We have not paid the real cost of being a first-rate society. As long as we buy into the notion that you can build a just society with capitalism alone, it's not going to get any better."
