I continue to watch The Wire years later because it is more than a show of entertainment. The Wire breaks down the many layers of corruption in our "Great" America fabric, which to tell you the truth it has never been great. The Wire is a vehicle that dissects crime (police, drugs, and the criminal underworld), education system, politics, and media in a way even the most common person can understand. The Wire is a bird’s eye view into what was happening then and now all over the world. The ecosystem of The Wire exists in places all over America. Shoot, I can tell you that this ecosystem exists in my hometown city of Sacramento right now. I am writing this post to continue the celebration of a show twenty years after its original airing to give flowers to everyone who made it possible from the lighting team to David Simon. Everyone deserves praise including the late Michael "Omar" Williams who is gone but will never be forgotten.
