“The Wire” Creator To Eric Holder: End War On Drugs, Get New Season
BALTIMORE-David Simon, the creator of the critically acclaimed TV series, “The Wire” has addressed Eric Holder’s request for a new season of “The Wire.” At a recent conference on the impacts of drugs and families, with “The Wire” stars Wendell Pierce and Sonja Sohn, Holder begged for a new season of the show. Both Holder and his boss, President Barack Obama are big fans of “The Wire.” Digital Spy reports:

“The Attorney-General’s kind remarks are noted and appreciated,” he wrote. “I’ve spoken to Ed Burns and we are prepared to go to work on season six of The Wire if the Department of Justice is equally ready to reconsider and address its continuing prosecution of our misguided, destructive and dehumanising drug prohibition.”

Simon further claimed that the government’s current anti-drug policies are “nothing more or less than a war on our underclass.”
