Obama/The Wire

I came across this old article about a week ago and passed it around to a couple of my comrades who too enjoy HBO's (former show) The Wire. Apparently it is a favorite of our New President, and Casey Gane-McCalla over at the Huffington Post wrote an interesting (unfortunately only to those who know the show) article detailing the lessons Obama could have taken from the show. Because this post is probably only interesting to the two people I already shared the article with, I have included some beautiful images (primarily) of my favorite characters from the show.

Needless to say, I highly recommend you rent the first season, pay close attention, and understand why it is one of the greatest television shows in recent history.

Dawg, I gotta say, if you'd seen as many smug sophomore student films as I have you would understand how much it is NOT like one of those. Aside from that, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it but I suppose it's not for everyone. Hope you dig Au Hasard Balthazar!
