David Simon couldn't make up a quote like this one from yesterday's Sun:
"We went to our drug people and said, 'Do these guys,' " [Baltimore police homicide commander Terrence] McLarney said. "We took down an entire drug organization to get this murder."
Gives a little perspective on where Simon is coming from. Much like all those crazy characters and scenarios inhabiting Carl Hiaasen's novels that you're certain could only be the product of a sunbaked, over-fished imagination....until you read his Miami Herald columns.
