Potpourri for $600, Alex

March 24, 2010

I came upon two David Simon related items today one of which follows up on our discussion of the impact on the ground of the filming of Treme:

  • Picayune film critic Mike Scott chimes in on the controversy. Scott believes that, on balance, the hassle is worth it.
  • There’s a nifty piece at Slate by Drake Bennett about The Wire being taught at some pretty darn hoity-toity Universities such as Havud and Berserkeley.

    Tulane also has a sociology class this semester (Spring 2010) about the Wire.
