David Simon – the man who remoulded Baltimore

Given the weekend with a little time to read, Atlantic Monthly profiles the creator of HBO series The Wire (now in its final season). It is one of the most critically acclaimed shows ever to make it to television – it’s gritty, cynical, clever, vicious, myopic and compelling. Creator and former hack David Simon is more or less the same. Well worth reading.
