I’ve lived without HBO for the past decade, so I’m just now watching “The Wire” on DVD. Great show, as everyone has said, even if it does cause people to get a really skewed impression of Baltimore, which is an underrated city in my experience. Of course, there is crime there:
The full-sized statue of Cal Ripken Jr.’s No. 8 in front of the Camden Yards baseball stadium was stolen overnight, and Baltimore police said they have arrested four males in the case. City police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the statue has been recovered, though many details, including whether it was damaged, were not immediately available.
Though the police aren’t releasing names of the suspects, this smells like something Bubbles would do. Omar never would have gotten caught.
BTW, if this inspires a bunch of comments, please be sensitive with the spoilers: I’m only 10 episodes into the first season.
