I don't get your critique of the Wire though. The problems of the ghetto are shown to be the denizens themselves who terrorize their own neighbors and friends, and the race baiting vermin who profit on the suffering of these people.
I don't agree with this take on the show, but I there's definitely stuff in there to support this reading, which is of course why Harkin's problem with the show is so strange. Sheeeiiit, could Karl Rove have written a more unsympathetic picture of an urban Democratic politician than Clay Davis?
