Scroll down and you'll find Bill Simmons' thoughts on The Wire -- long story short, he, like everyone else, thinks it's great. If you haven't seen it yet, you really must. Kevin Carey at The Quick and the Ed (education policy blog) promises that he'll be doing Wire-blogging throughout Season 4 to comment on the show's presentation of inner-city school stuff. I think what the world really needs is for Mark Kleiman to start watching and blogging.
