David Simon on America as a Horror Show

If I dig myself out anytime soon I have a pretty fun web project centered around David Simon’s brilliant television series The Wire that I want to run sometime this year. In the meantime, here’s a 26-minute video featuring David Simon articulating all the points he made in both The Wire and his unfortunately abbreviated Treme about the deep failings of America along deep institutional and economic fault lines. Here’s one rough quote: “Labor’s lost the fight, Capital won.” It’s really good stuff, thanks to Alec Couros for the link on Twitter.
