How did you know? I ended up plumbing the whole house with PVC and a installing forced air system. Efficient and burglar proof.

I do like to buy athletic socks and 6XL tees from his shopping cart store, though.

It does show how Maryland politics in general are pretty corrupt, especially in Baltimore City. The problem is, the crooks keep getting elected by the same group of people that depending on welfare and EBT!

Default Wire

Some aspects of the WIRE showed a depiction of the drug problem (drug sells and drug use). Other aspects were stretched. The scene in which the cop turned teacher starts the new school year and the school was dirty and reckless. Not true. Another scene in which, the western district police commissioner decides to make a deal with the drug dealers to sell drugs in a certain area only. Not true.

I am saddened that folks take television for real life and won't recognize that aspects of it is entertainment. For sure, what community in America does not have a drug problem. The major diference between communities in which people have lots of disposal money and other assets and communities in which the money disposal is limited, is that one is hidden and looks really good, you don't have street corners for persons to hang, because the design of the community means you must have a car. However, in urban areas, they were design for neighborhoods to have their own commerce (that is the reason why you have store fronts) and for people to interact with one another. As a person that was raised in Baltimore the meaning of a neighborhood is the fact that you know everyone and nothing is hidden. There is the good, the bad, and the ugly, but it is the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a micro of the larger world.

Baltimore is just like the Wire, except more depressing.

Back before they knocked down the high rise projects and they made living in the county so cheap the wire was a really accurate representation of west baltimore and parts of east. But since the mid 2000s its a lot better but still pretty bad. If you live in an area code of like 21214 your neighborhod is nothing like the wire, but it can be pretty xenophobic if you catch my drift.

Wow, they have "The Wire Tour", huh? Not a bad idea really. The last thing Baltimore needs is some country couple from Indiana trying to find Vine Street. Ah, excuse me, is this the corner where Bodie got capped?
