in response to attorney general eric holder jokingly demanding that the wire's creators produce another season of the show, david simon responded:
The Attorney-General's kind remarks are noted and appreciated. I've spoken to Ed Burns and we are prepared to go to work on season six ofThe Wire if the Department of Justice is equally ready to reconsider and address its continuing prosecution of our misguided, destructive and dehumanising drug prohibition.

your fortnightly boat.

For decades, dozens of forgotten Navy and merchant ships have been corroding in Suisun Bay, 30 miles northeast of San Francisco. These historic vessels—the Mothball Fleet—served their country in four wars: WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and Desert Storm. After a decade of impasse, the ghost fleet is slowly dwindling as the ships are towed out one-by-one for scrapping. About 15 retired ships are already gone; by 2017, the entire fleet will be just a memory. (via)

conde nast : nightmare tenant

Conde Nast spent millions when it hired Frank Gehry to design its cafeteria in its current headquarters at 4 Times Square -- but the big bucks spent on its upcoming move to 1 World Trade Center will be used for something a little bit different.
The glitzy publishing giant is spending up to $1 million for a huge ventilation shaft that will poke through the façade of the north face of the glass tower at 1 WTC so that the Condé Nast cafeteria can have its own exhaust outlet, rather than tie in to the central flue used by the rest of the tenants that will run up the center of the building.
Originally, Condé Nast wanted to blast through the shortest distance and out the southern wall, which some sources felt would have marred the aesthetics of the sheer glass façade overlooking the memorial.
The vent will be huge, about one story high and up to 25 feet wide, and would be visible from the ground. Sources said that originally PA Executive Director Chris Ward was going to nix the special exhaust vent, but eventually agreed to let Condé Nast have a special vent. However, it had to be on the north side, which will point toward Midtown. (via)
just ridiculous.
