A Headline Right Out of The Wire

In a case of life imitating art imitating life the Baltimore mayor was indicted on 12 counts of felony theft, perjury, fraud and misconduct in office. I can see Lester Freeman and his crew heading the investigation, Bunk and McNulty laughing about the headlines as they pass a bottle of Jameson’s in an empty lot.

And from reading the article, it sounds like the mayor and her attorney are taking pages right out of the Clay Davis/Clarence Royce playbook.

Man, that was a great show, I really look forward to another project from Simon.

I’m not the biggest fan of Pelosi, but I applaud the token letter she sent out. So often one side criticizes another, yet fails to follow their own marching orders. She’s putting the Democratic Party’s money where their mouth is.

Step aside, and let the courts sort it out. Do the right thing.
Problem is, he won’t.
